Don’t miss your chance to hear from Katie Ledecky, one of the most-decorated female swimmers in the history of the sport. Ledecky plans to share her plans for future competition, including the 2020 Summer games in Tokyo, at a National Press Club Headliners Luncheon on Monday, March 26.

Lunch will be served in the Club’s Ballroom at 12:30 p.m., with remarks beginning at 1 p.m., followed by a question-and-answer session ending at 2 p.m. Tickets cost $25 for Club members (members may purchase two tickets at this rate) and $39 for all other non-members. Tickets may be purchased here.

At just 20 years old, Ledecky has competed in two Olympic Games -- London in 2012 and Rio in 2016 -- and is the winner of five Olympic gold medals and 14 World Championship titles. She holds multiple world records in the women’s freestyle events and was named Swimming World’s World Swimmer of the Year in 2013, 2014, 2015, and 2016. Ledecky is currently a sophomore at Stanford and is interested in psychology and political science.

Club Members who have a paid reservation to the Luncheon and wish to attend the pre-luncheon reception must send their RSVP via email to at least 48 hours before the date of the Luncheon. Space may be limited.
