Ledecky broke her own 1650-yard free U.S. Open and American record on the last day of Florida Swimming Senior Champs in Orlando, FL. Her time of 15:01.41 beats her previous mark of 15:03.31, a record she set back in 2017 while she was still swimming collegiately for Stanford at the Art Adamson Invite.

Race video has emerged for the swim, which was Ledecky’s third American Record in four months after a six-year drought.

Now, Ledecky holds seven of the top-8 times in the history of the 1650 free and is over 22 seconds faster than Erica Sullivan, who is the second-fastest performer of all-time in the event and holds a personal best of 15:23.81.
