Katie Ledecky Height

I would encourage you to set really high goals. Set goals that, when you set them, you think they're impossible. But then every day you can work towards them, and anything is possible, so keep working hard and follow your dreams.

American competitive swimmer Katie Ledecky is without a doubt the greatest female swimmer of all time and of the greatest Olympians. She has won seven Olympic gold medals and 19 world championship gold medals after all.

About Katie Ledecky's Real Height

Katie is super tall. Height is of the best physical factors that give swimmers a distinct advantage, and Katie has plenty of it.

Her official height is 6 feet (183 cm), and weight is 160 lb (73 kg). This seems correct considering Katie seems an inch taller than Simone Manuel who is 5'11" (180 cm).

This makes Katie around 8 inches taller than the average height of women in the US.

Another surprising thing is that if Katie had been a man, she would have been far taller than the best male swimmer in the world -- Michael Phelps, who is really 6 feet 2½ inches tall.

I always just focus on what my own goals are, and not what anybody else's goals for me are or their expectations. I just know that my family will always be supporting me and my friends and my coaches. And as long as I put in the hard work and know that I'm giving it my best effort, I will always be happy.
