Katie Ledecky won all four of her events in her first swimming competition since the Tokyo Olympics, finishing with a 36-second victory in the 1,500m freestyle on Saturday in Greensboro, NC
Ledecky, 10-time Olympic medalist, clocked 15: 45.32, the 19th fastest time of her career. Ledecky holds the top 12 in history, led by her world record 15: 20.48.
In four days, Ledecky won the 200m in the 1,500m freestyle against fields largely lacking the women who are expected to be his best challengers during the world championship trials in April, also in Greensboro.
“It’s been a good week to assess where I am and learn some things that we can apply in training and move forward,” she said on Olympic Channel: Home of Team USA. “There are only five months left before testing. It comes quickly. “
Ledecky has raced for the first time since leaving Stanford for the University of Florida to train with the top male distance swimmers in the United States.
