Katie Ledecky

Finalist in Sports

About Katie Ledecky

Katie Ledecky is truly a one-of-a-kind competitor. Since stepping onto the big stage (er, pool) during the 2012 Olympics (at just 15 years old), Katie Ledecky has broken records left and right. Now a Division I swimmer at Stanford University, Katie’s habit of winning in extraordinary fashion led to her being named USOC SportsWoman of the Year for the second year in a row. Her Instagram, with 385K+ followers, is the perfect place to see how crazy Katie’s life is, where pictures of her with Kobe Bryant, Michael Phelps, Dave Chappelle, and Adam Sandler appear next to posts that make her look like a normal 20-year-old college student. Her Twitter account, which hosts 150K+ followers, is another great way for fans to follow the exciting life of such an impressive champion.
