Katie Ledecky's swimming career is full of Olympic gold medals and world records, but perhaps one of the most impressive feats of her career came in the form of a TikTok video. I'm kidding — sort of. I know her athletic feats are in a league of their own, but once you see this clip of Ledecky balancing milk on her head while swimming, you'll understand my admiration.

The 23-year-old recently partnered with Got Milk to try out a whole new challenge: "What can you do without spilling a drop?" Well, it turns out Ledecky can swim the entire length of an Olympic-size pool with a glass of chocolate milk sitting on top of her cap. Totally no big deal, right? Uh, sure, Jan. Even Ledecky said this is "Possibly one of the best swims of my career!" I'm guessing getting to sip on a drink at the end didn't hurt.

Watch the full clip below to see Ledecky's impressive feat in action. Something tells me it'll be a little bit harder for the next person who tries to follow her strokes.
