Katie Ledecky was 2 seconds prior the American Record pace at the two hundred meter mark of the women’s two hundred meter freestyle on Monday evening in Omaha USA Swimming Olympic Trial, Nebraska, and though the world Record line eventually caught up to her over the last fifty, the early thrill had the crowd within the CenturyLink center charged from the first turn. Ledecky molding through world record pace early, charging out to a 200-meter free split that had it been a straight two hundred, is quicker than all but half-dozen Americans have been in history. Ledecky paid the price on the back-half but persisted to world record pace till the last 30 meters, when she finally finished in 3:58.98. That’s still quicker than anyone else besides her has been in history, and therefore the 3rd-best performance ever.
