Michael Phelps and Katie Ledecky highlight the swimmers chasing gold medals for the United States on Day 4 of the 2016 Rio Olympics.
Ledecky's spot in the 200m freestyle final is secure after a solid showing in the semis.
At the 2013 World Championships in Barcelona, she won gold and set an American record in the 400m freestyle. She'll definitely have a shot to medal but would need a fantastic swim and a couple of the favorites to falter to have a shot.
