KNOXVILLE, Tennessee, December 8. KATIE Ledecky provided one of the highlights of the USA Swimming nationals with her American record swim in the 1650 freestyle, breaking the record by more than nine seconds.

In this video interview, Ledecky talks about the different racing strategy she employed this year as opposed to last year when she fell off record pace about two-thirds through the race. She also looks back on the recent accolades from the past few weeks, including World Female Swimmer of the Year from Swimming World Magazine.
