2018 U.S. Nationals: Katie Ledecky Press Conference (Video)

CHECK OUT ALL OF OUR U.S. NATIONALS PREVIEWS HERE

2018 U.S. NATIONAL CHAMPIONSHIPS

On the eve of the US nationals beginning, many top tier athletes are coming through the media zone to preview the upcoming competition and answer other questions that are swirling in the media’s heads.

Katie Ledecky rounded out the athletes that came to talk with the press today, and she gave us a gentle reminder. It’s not easy being Katie Ledecky. Katie delved into what goes into a world record, and that getting faster keeps getting harder and harder. However, she did admit she’s had one of the best training blocks of her life this spring, and she’s excited to see what she can put up this week in Irvine. She also breaks down her involvement in a children’s scavenger hunt on Stanford’s campus recently. Is there anything she can’t do?

I don’t think the 100 free is a big priority for her.

Come on… The first race of the meet. The freshest conditions. The only challenge she has. First it was 400, 800 and 1500 exhibition. Then just 200 making it the first event of the meet. And now it is the turn of 100. If her conditions in late spring were not a taper then why not to show the power in sprint tomorrow. If she isn’t going to do anything interesting at this meet but getting selected for PP (as she said in interview) then it’s still ok. We can wait another three weeks for something special.
