COLLEGE PARK, Maryland, December 8. WHEN she used to compete at the Tom Dolan Invitational, Katie Ledecky was an unassuming burgeoning age group distance star. Now that she shocked the world with an Olympic gold medal in London, and has continued to improve since then, the Nation's Capital Aquatics swimmer has some other obligations to the sport. One of which is signing autographs for all the swimmers at this year's Tom Dolan Invitational, even though she's also swimming at the meet!
Check out the excitement from the Tom Dolan Invitational swimmers as Ledecky tries not to get a hand cramp in an impromptu autograph session as captured by SwimmingWorld.TV.
