Katie Ledecky continues to do what she’s best at — winning gold medals. Ledecky won the 400 meter freestyle at the FINA World Championships in Budapest, Hungary. The Bethesda native beat 15 year-old Canadian sensation Summer McIntosh with a time of 3:58.15. American Leah Smith took the bronze medal.
This was Ledecky’s 16th career gold medal at the World Championships.
