Katie Ledecky is a popular American swimmer, one of the most prolific ones of all time. She was born in Washington, where she started training when she was just six years old. Her role models were her brother and their mother, both of whom were professional swimmers at the time. When she started high school, she joined her school’s swimming team and set several national records at the time.
Her first senior competition was the 2012 Olympic trials, where she took the first spot and qualified for the following Olympics. At the Games themselves, she won the gold medal and broke two world records in the process. Her run (or rather swim), was named the Best Female Performance of the Year shortly after, during the Golden Goggle awards.
She started off 2013 with several amazing performances. She won four gold medals at the World Championships, again setting two world records in the process. At the end of the year, Katie was named the World Swimmer of the Year by the Swimming World mag.
2014 was another great year for her. She won five more gold medals during the Pan Pacific Championships in Australia. And once again, she broke several world records during the event, some of her own.
During the next year, she won yet another five gold medals during the World Championships in Kazan, Russia. This time, she broke three world records in the process, cementing herself as a living legend of the sport.
She obviously qualified for the Summer Olympics of ’16. During the competition, she won four gold and one silver Olympic medal, for a total of 5 golds and one silver during her career. Last year was, as you can imagine, another great season for Ledecky. At the WC, she won five more gold medals and a single silver one. This makes her a total of 14-times World Champion, although her senior career is only 6 years in the making. Oh, and she broke a total of 13 world records.
