Women's 200m Freestyle
1.) Katie Ledecky -- 1:56.31
2.) Leah Smith -- 1:58.47
3.) Simone Manuel -- 1:58.98


What does ​Katie Ledecky ​do with a short turnaround between events -- after the 400 IM no less? She wins the 200m freestyle with a 1:56.31 -- the fourth fastest time int he world this year. Plain and simple: Ledecky is a racer. It does not matter when or where. The surprising part about this race was that Ledecky flipped second at the 100m mark in 57.54 -- only four one hundredths of a second behind ​Simone Manuel​, who is known for her speed. Ledecky then turned on the jets to bury the field and take the win. ​Leah Smith​ came from fourth at the 100 to finish second in 1:58.47. Manuel faded a bit to finish third in 1:58.98.
