Some Olympians peak really young and you wonder—will they still be on top in four years? In the case of Katie Ledecky, who won two gold medals at the London Olympics when she was just 15 years old, the answer is a resounding “yes.”
On Sunday night, Katie not only won the 400-meter freestyle against the competition in Rio, she shattered the previous record. That record was actually set by her at a competition in 2014. Katie’s final time came in at three minutes, 56.46 seconds.
That was Katie’s second medal at the Rio Olympics, after winning a silver in the 4x100m relay on Saturday. She’s got two more chances to win more medals, with a spot in the 200m freestyle (on Monday) and the 800m freestyle (on Aug. 11).
