Who Broke The Record For 1,500-Meter Freestyle Swimming?

Katie Ledecky broke the record for 1,500 meter freestyle swimming on October 29 2022.

Ledecky swam the 1,500 meter freestyle swimming competition in 15 minutes 8 seconds during the Swimming World Cup 2022 tournament in Toronto, Canada. That beat the record of 15 minutes 18 seconds that was set by Sarah Wellbrock of Germany in 2019.

Speaking about her record breaking swim, Ledecky said, “I felt locked into a pace and fell off a little bit toward the end probably … but I held it together enough to get the job done.”
