 Katie Ledecky Biography

Two world records, four world championships, one Olympic gold. All before she passed her driver’s license test. Born in Washington, D.C. in 1997, Kathleen Ledecky (Katie, for short) did not waste much time before beginning her already-legendary swimming career. She started swimming at age six, following her older brother Michael’s footsteps.

Ledecky lives with her parents in Bethesda, Maryland, attends Stone Ridge School of the Sacred Heart. She continues to train with her original club, Nation’s Capital Swim Club. She was first coached by Yuri Suguiyama, but now trains with coach Bruce Gemmell.

Ledecky exploded onto the U.S. swimming scene in 2012 at the Olympic Trials, where she was the youngest swimmer at the meet. She quickly claimed her spot in the future of American swimming by winning the 800 freestyle and finishing third in the 400 and ninth in the 200.

A few weeks later, she surprised her country and the world with a gold medal finish in the 800 freestyle at the 2012 Olympic Games in London, solidifying her place on the international stage. Her time of 8:14.63 was scarily close to the World Record and broke Janet Evans’ long-standing American Record of 8:16.22.

Ledecky returned to school and continued to train at NCAP with coach Bruce Gemmell. After countless splits and times that danced around world record paces, Ledecky made her move at the 2013 FINA World Championships in Barcelona. She set world records in both the 800 and 1500 freestyles and an American record in the 400. In the 1500, she shaved nearly six seconds off of Kate Ziegler’s previous world record in a hard-fought battle against Denmark’s Lotte Friis. Ledecky also made her international relay debut in Barcelona and won gold in the 4×200 freestyle relay with teammates Shannon Vreeland, Karlee Bispo and Missy Franklin. The 2013 FINA female swimmer of the meet has certainly proven herself as a crucial part of the future of American swimming.

At the 2014 Pan Pacific Championships, she won five golds (200 freestyle, 400 freestyle, 800 freestyle, 800 freestyle relay) and became the first female to win four individuals. Later in the year at U.S. summer nationals, Ledecky broke the world record in the 400 freestyle. She also won the 200 freestyle and 800 freestyle, and now holds the world and American records in the 400, 800, and 1500 freestyle events.

One of the year’s top recruits, she will enroll at Stanford University in 2016 instead of 2015. Ledecky chose to defer a year to focus on the 2016 Olympic Games in Rio.
