How to watch Katie Ledecky at the 2024 Olympics

Katie Ledecky is heading into her fourth Olympics with a chance to become the most decorated women's swimmer in the history of the Games.

The 27-year-old swimmer already has 10 Olympic medals (seven gold and three silver) to her name. Only Jenny Thompson has more with 12 (eight gold, three silver and one bronze).

Ledecky qualified for five events at the 2024 Olympics and is expected to compete in four. She will look to win her fourth straight gold in the 800m freestyle and second straight gold in the 1,500m freestyle, an event that debuted at the last Olympics. She will also compete in the 400m freestyle and 4x200m freestyle relay, two events where she took home silver in Tokyo. Additionally, Ledecky qualified for the 200m freestyle, but she is expected to opt out so she can concentrate on her three other individual events and the relay.

Here is the streaming schedule to catch Ledecky in action at the 2024 Olympics:
