How many medals has Katie Ledecky won? Tracking results from USA star’s events at 2024 Olympic trials

It’s hard enough for any swimmer in the world to get an edge on Katie Ledecky in the pool. It’s going to be even harder for those in the United States.

Ledecky is an all-time great swimmer, with more Olympic and world championship medals than any women’s swimmer in history. At 27, she’s still going strong as one of the best in the world as she sets her sights on her fourth Olympics.

Before she can start planning her trip to Paris for the 2024 Summer Games, Ledecky first has to qualify. She is expected to compete in her usual four freestyle races: the 200, 400, 800 and 1500. She’ll also almost certainly be part of the 4×200 relay should she desire to race in that event, as well.

The road to winning the medals in France begins with earning spots on the team in Indianapolis where she’ll compete at Lucas Oil Stadium against the best American swimmers for the two spots available in each event.

There aren’t medals at the Olympic trials, but there is added pressure to place first or second in each event. Swimmers who finish in the top two spots in an event with an Olympic qualifying time are automatically entered into the Olympics.

So Ledecky will need to place in either first or second in her races to ensure she swims those events at the Olympics.

If she places in the top two for any event with an Olympic qualifying time, she will automatically earn a spot in that race in Paris. She would secure a spot on the 4×200 freestyle relay with a top four time in the 200 freestyle.
