Katie Ledecky continues her domination in the pool regardless of the event.
The swimmer set a new world record in the 1,500-meter freestyle race Wednesday, taking first place in her preliminary heat at the 2018 TYR Pro Swim Series in Indianapolis.
She posted a time of 15:20.48, which was five seconds better than her previous record set in 2015, per Nick Zaccardi of NBC Sports.
The race represented Ledecky’s pro debut after announcing in March she would forgo her final two years of eligibility at Stanford.
