Katie Ledecky's done a 8:18 in practice…right? Nope. She said she doesn't do 800 repeats, but that 8:18 win in the 800 free did look so easy. (courtesy of Tim Binning)

Excellent work, Tim Binning… as usual.
My s/o is a photographer, and I wish she would do more stuff like this. Alas, weddings pay the bills more reliably.

Also, the caption reminded me that just 4 years ago, Connor Jaeger was just an average high school recruit who didn’t even have a Sr. Nats cut. Amazing!
