With 15 world championship gold medals to her name and world records in the women’s 400m, 800, and 1,500m freestyle, Ledecky shows just how perfect her swimming technique is.

Having reached the far end of the pool without spilling a drop, Ledecky captioned her video: ‘Possibly one of the best swims of my career!’
