Ok, fuckers. Katie Ledecky is a goddamn national treasure. She is a superhuman swimming prodigy from the planet Aquanaut. The fact that she chose to live here in the US as opposed to some distant land from which she could have taunted all of America is our blessing.

She’s going to come back on either Friday or Saturday and shatter her own current WR in the 800 by going under 8:00 and no one will bother talking about the 200. She will celebrate by drinking a bottle of San Pellegrino.
