Olympic gold medalist and all-around amazing swimmer Katie Ledecky met with the media on the eve of the Arena Pro Swim Series Austin today.

Ledecky explained that she is coming off altitude training at the U.S. Olympic Training Center, and that typically means big things from the superstar swimmer.

Ledecky is slated for a long weekend with seven events:

Day 1: 100 free, 400 free

Day 2: 200 free, 400 IM

Day 3: 800 free, 100 back, 200 IM

With Ledecky taking a year off to focus on the Olympics before enrolling at Stanford University next year, Ledecky could regularly put up astonishing swims in this Olympic year.
