Katie Ledecky

How Katie Ledecky became better at swimming than anyone is at anything

By Dave Sheinin, Washington Post, June 24, 2016

My notes/thoughts on the article.

Always curious how elite performers go about their day to day routine. Some great insight into what makes her the best female swimmer in the world. What sticks out to me in this article is how relentless she is in practice, every lap, every day, everything she has. Reminds me of the Michael Jordan stories in practice, wanted practices to be tougher than games.
