With Chase Kalisz going inside 1:56 in the 200m butterfly and then capping a fine meet with a 1:57.21 lifetime best 200IM at the Atlanta round of the U.S. Pro Swim and Olympic champion Lilly King rising to No 2 on the current world rankings in the 100m breaststroke, it would be all too easy to put another 8:15 from Katie Ledecky in the 800m freestyle in the place summed up by USA Swimming’s sum-up of events: “Katie Ledecky (Bethesda, Md./Stanford Swimming) won the women’s 800m free in 8:15.71 for her third victory in Atlanta”. True, though the win is neither here nor there (look not to what she did but how she did it, a 2:01 to finish off) – and the time is only a pay-off line in the context of Ledecky and no other.
