At the 2019 FINA World Championships, after losing the 400 free for the first time since 2013, Katie Ledecky announced she had a stomach virus, keeping her out of multiple races. Later in the meet, Ledecky bounced back winning the 800 free in a come-from-behind victory.
Ledecky swam fast over the 2019 season on the run-up to World Championships in South Korea, and she expects to swim faster over the 2020 season on the run-up to the 2020 U.S. Olympic Trials in Omaha, Nebraska next June.
