BGR is re-naming its "Gold Standard" fries in honor of Bethesda gold medalist Katie Ledecky.
File this one under “Katie fever.” Bethesda’s BGR will re-name its “Gold Standard” french fries in honor of Katie Ledecky, the Bethesda swimming phenom who took home the gold medal in the women’s 800m race in London last week.

But the proceeds will go to a great cause—the USA Swimming Foundation, the philanthropic arm of USA Swimming that encourages kids across the country to …
