It’s always very easy and at the same time really amazing to analyze the terrific performance of Katie Ledecky.
With the collaboration of Stefano Nurra, a video analyst and coach for the Turkish Swimming Federation, the Energy Standard Swim Club, and the Austrian Swimming Federation, we present an analysis of Ledecky’s race.
Even if the data table shows an almost perfect management of the race, I am not willing to give up the idea that perfection does not exist.
First of all, the management of the speed is very interesting. The time recorded at the end of the first 300m is the fastest and very close to the time recorded for the last 300m.
For the second 300m we recorded the slowest time. After that there is a great progression: 3:02.50 – 3:05.79 – 3:04.91–3:04.74 – 3:02.54. The race respects the scheme 1/5/4/3/2.
