That’s right! We’re proud to welcome 5x Olympic Gold Medalist and 14x World Champion Katie Ledecky to #TeamTYR!
As one of the most iconic names in swimming, Ledecky has redefined the boundaries of her sport. At just 21 years old, she has been named “World Swimmer of the Year” four times and has broken 14 world records. With show-stopping appearances in the last two Olympic Games, she has earned a total of six Olympic medals, including five golds for her swims in the 200m, 400m, 800m, and 4x200m freestyle. Katie currently holds 26 medals in major international competitions, including 24 first-place finishes. In addition, she has earned 14 long course world championship titles, already the most of any female swimmer to date.
While Katie has been regularly referred to as the greatest female swimmer in history, her success extends far beyond the pool. In addition to being an Academic All-American psychology major at Stanford University, the two-time Olympian works with a number of charities, including Children’s Hospital, Catholic Charities, Shepherd’s Table and Bikes for the World.
“I am excited to partner with TYR as I take this important step in my career,” said Ledecky. “We share a vision of growing the sport for current and future generations of swimmers, and we will build towards that goal together. I appreciate TYR’s investment in me, and their commitment to technology that is critical to my ongoing quest to swim faster.”
