22-year-old Michael Ledecky was nine when her six-year-old sister joined him in the pool, she tried to keep up to him,it didn’t take long for Katie to do that and then left him behind. Michael recalled that moment.
Oh, that’s a good question, Bill. It was pretty early on, I think, unfortunately. I think the pattern was for a while that she’d always beat my personal best that I had made the preceding year, so that would go on for a while. Even though we were three years apart in age, she was maybe one year behind me in swimming. And then I think by the time she was in high school, she was catching up and beating me in the longer events, and now I don’t think I can beat her in a 25-[meter race].
