Katie Ledecky will compete at the next Tokyo Olympics this summer
The young American swimmer will be, together with Caeleb Dressel, the star of American swimming and one of the most anticipated athletes at the Games. In an interesting interview with People magazine, Katie talked about the Olympics and the season.
She said: "You really do get to interact with a lot of athletes at the Olympics, typically. I don't know what it's going to be like next year, but typically you're in the cafeteria with everyone from all over the world So that's kind of just a melting pot of every athlete, every sport, every country.
You do get some instances where you are approached by athletes from other countries, and they want to sit down next to you and talk to you over a meal in the village. I've had a couple of those instances. And you're also riding the bus with the other athletes and you strike up conversations there and you trade pins and all that.
You still really do get the opportunity to meet so many people, especially at events after the Olympics. So whether it's award ceremonies or other events that we're invited to post-Olympics, media events, things like that.
I'm really happy to be able to partner w ith Visa and Capital One, to share more about my goal-setting process and hopefully inspire young adults to set and achieve some big goals for the year. As a recent graduate of Stanford University, I've just been so impressed with Visa and Capital One's ongoing commitment to help the student community succeed.
They have a new First-Gen Focus program, which is dedicated to first-generation college students, and they're just really helping other college students learn smart money habits and prepare for their financial future and ultimately reach their goals. "
