Katie Ledecky Wants You to Know She’s Still Dominant
The Olympic champion and World Record holder beat her 2nd place opponent by 26 seconds.
Katie Ledecky is back where she’s comfortable.
Day 2 of the 2021 Pro Swim Series in Mission Viejo saw Olympic champion Ledecky tie the U.S. Open record in the 200m free in a time of 1:54.40 and take the No. 1 spot in the world rankings.
It’s Ledecky’s best time ever on U.S. soil and her second-best performance ever in the event. Her lifetime best 1:53.73 won her gold in the event at the Rio Olympics in 2016.
Notably, Ledecky is faster than she was four years ago in the U.S. Olympic Trials when she swam a 1:54.88. One can only wonder what she’ll be capable of come Tokyo.
