    Katie Ledecky

    10x Olympic Medalist, 21x World Champion, 14x World Record Breaker

    One of the most dominant athletes the world has seen and among the most celebrated of her generation, Katie Ledecky is a 10-time Olympic medalist and 19-time World Champion—the most of any female swimmer. A record-shattering, history-making athlete, she has reached undeniable “GOAT” status. Katie became the most-decorated U.S. female athlete for a second consecutive Olympics when she won four medals at the 2020 Tokyo Olympics, making history by winning the gold in the first-ever women’s 1500-meter freestyle, and becoming the first to three-peat in the 800-meter freestyle. Four years prior, at the 2016 Rio Olympics, she broke two world records while winning four gold medals and one silver medal, becoming the most successful U.S. female athlete ever at a single Olympics. Her Olympic legend began at the 2012 London Olympic Games, where she was the youngest U.S. athlete at just 15 years old. Showing confidence and maturity beyond her years, she delivered a win in the 800-meter freestyle race, beating out a field of more experienced competitors by four seconds to win her first gold medal.
