Katie Ledecky 10 Fast Facts, Biography, Wiki

Ledecky was born in Washington, D.C., and raised in the suburb of Bethesda, Maryland, the daughter of Mary Gen (Hagan) and David Ledecky.

Her paternal grandfather, Dr. Jaromír Ledecký, PhD (1927–2011), was born in Prague, Czechoslovakia (now Czech Republic), to Catholic parents who married at Kostel svaté Ludmily in Vinohrady.

His father was a quarter-Jewish procurator who had visited America in 1921.

Jaromír arrived in New York on 8 September 1947 as a student, later becoming an economist, and married a Jewish woman named Bertha Ruth Greenwald (Ledecky’s paternal grandmother) in Brooklyn on 30 December 1956, who lost relatives in the Holocaust.

Ledecky’s mother is of Irish descent.

Ledecky is Catholic.

Her uncle is businessman and New York Islanders owner Jon Ledecky.

Ledecky began swimming at the age of six due to the influence of her older brother, Michael, and her mother, who swam for the University of New Mexico.

In Bethesda, she attended Little Flower School through eighth grade and graduated from Stone Ridge School of the Sacred Heart in 2015.

During her high-school swimming career, Ledecky twice set the American and US Open record in the 500-yard freestyle, and she twice set the national high-school record in the 200-yard freestyle.

Ledecky finished her high-school career as the holder of the Stone Ridge school record in every swimming event except the 100-meter breaststroke.

During the summer of 2012, she trained with the Nation’s Capital Swim Club (formerly the Curl Burke Swim Club) under coach Yuri Suguiyama.

Following Suguiyama’s departure to coach for the University of California, Berkeley, she continued to train with the Nation’s Capital Swim Club under coach Bruce Gemmell through the 2016 Olympics.

During the summers prior to 2012, she swam for Palisades Swim Team in Cabin John, Maryland.

Ledecky accepted an athletic scholarship to Stanford University, where she swam for coach Greg Meehan’s Stanford Cardinal women’s swimming team.

In December 2016, Ledecky was chosen as one of the sponsors of the US Navy aircraft carrier USS Enterprise alongside gymnast Simone Biles.

They are the first Olympians to be given this honor.

In December 2020, she completed the required courses for a bachelor of arts in psychology from Stanford University, and graduated in June 2021.
