Watch Katie Ledecky Win Her First Collegiate Event

Stanford vs. Oregon State University

Five-time Olympic Gold Medalist Katie Ledecky kicked off her collegiate swimming career this past Friday in a duel meet against Oregon State University. She took to her first meet in front of a sold out crowd, coming out on top in the 200 medley relay and 100 freestyle.

The Olympic Gold Medalist and World Record Holder swam the freestyle leg of the medley relay, where Stanford finished with a time of 1:42.92. She also took first in the 100 freestyle, coming home in a time of 50.10. In addition to the relay and 100 freestyle, Ledecky took home a second place finish in the 200 butterfly and swam in the 400 freestyle relay.

Stanford won the meet by a score of 141 to 109, while swimming the last four events as exhibition. Ledecky will swim again on October 20th, where Stanford will take on Washington State University at home.

You can check out a video of Ledecky anchoring the 200 medley relay below, the first win of her collegiate career.

I actually want to see her time in 100 Br, 200 Bk and 400IM for her off-strokes during the preseason. For the world class 200IM and 400IM, I think the key would be the breaststroke. She will need to improve on this leg.
