Watch Katie Ledecky Qualify For an Olympic Spot in the 400m Freestyle
Ledecky's 4:01.27 finish wasn't as fast as she expected. She said at the end of her swim, "It's pretty tough for the first race here. I always remember five years ago, it was not a fun race. It's just good to check the box and hopefully have some good swims the rest of the week." Paige Madden, 22, finished second to Ledecky.
