Swimmer Katie Ledecky says the thrill of winning a gold medal for Team USA never gets old

She might recently have surpassed the legendary Michael Phelps for the most career individual world swimming titles, but Katie Ledecky says the thrill of winning remains as powerful as ever.

Ledecky eclipsed Phelps’ tally of 15 world swimming titles at the 2023 World Aquatic Championships in Fukuoka, Japan, in July. The 26-year-old finished first in the 800-meter freestyle, an event she was won an incredible six times in a row.

“It felt great. It was so much fun to represent Team USA at the international level again,” Ledecky told CNN’s The Source with Kaitlan Collins. “I’ve been doing it for a while now and it just doesn’t get old, it doesn’t get old winning a gold medal for Team USA.”
