Keeping Up With Katie: Ledecky Breaks 2nd World Record in a Week

Katie Ledecky is back in the pool doing what she does best. For the second time in a week, Ledecky set a world record.

On Saturday, the 7-time gold medal winner won the 800-meter freestyle in a FINA Swimming World Cup event in Indianapolis. Ledecky’s time of 7 minutes, 57.42 seconds broke the previous record by almost 2 seconds. That record had stood for nine years.

Last Saturday in Toronto, Ledecky set a world record in the 1500 meter freestyle short course by nearly 10 seconds.
