Description

After very relaxed preliminaries, where she was under the World Record pace for the first 200m, few in the pool doubted that Katie Ledecky would not win the final of the women’s 400m free. The 18-year-old US swimmer did not disappoint and easily touched first in a new Championship Record of 3:59.13, improving the former best mark of the competition, held by Federica Pellegrini (ITA, 3:59.15) since Rome 2009.
