Tokyo Olympics: When to watch Ledecky's swimming events originally appeared on NBC Sports Washington
American swimming legend Katie Ledecky enters the 2020 Tokyo Olympics with the opportunity to become the most decorated female athlete in its 125-year history. With five gold medals already in tow, Ledecky is just four behind former Soviet gymnast Larisa Latynina for the record.
The DMV native is slated to appear in four individual events and at least one relay. After taking home four gold medals and a silver at Rio 2016, Ledecky will be among the favorites to win every time she jumps in the pool — particularly in the long-distance races.
