American great Katie Ledecky crushed the first women’s 1500m freestyle final to win her first gold medal at Tokyo 2020.

Ledecky was the favorite to win the event, and she did not disappoint.

The American swimming star posted a 15: 37.34, leading the group for most of the race and finishing more than four seconds ahead of the silver medalist, fellow American Erica Sullivan.

Germany’s Sarah Kohler finished third, with a time of 15: 42.91.

However, it is Ledecky’s sixth Olympic gold medal and her eighth Olympic medal overall.

It is her second medal from the Tokyo Games after she won silver in the 400m freestyle. Earlier today, however, she was unable to get on the podium in the 200m freestyle.
