10-time Olympic swimming medalist Katie Ledecky unpacks her entire Pro Swim season and training in this interview. Ledecky’s straight to the point, noting her training-hub change to Florida under coach Anthony Nesty and the shortened season. Per usual, she seems completely unfazed by anything. Looking ahead, U.S. World Trials is just another meet. I have a feeling she’s not going to be fully rested in Greensboro–but I have no confirmation on that.
PREDICTIONS: I overshot my predictions for the San Antonio Pro Swim, but that’s really all Ledecky needs to do to make Team USA. Here’s my reset for USA Swimming’s International Team Trials , aka World Championship Trials:
200 free – 1.54.2
400 free – 3 59.7
800 free – 8 18.7
Mile – 15 35
But who cares what I think. It’s all about what you think. Drop your comments below.
