Women's freestyle swimming gold decided in Rio

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.

It's not a place we're accustomed to seeing Franklin finish. Four of those medals were gold medals. Her blurb was written by swimming legend Janet Evans. She won her first in 2012.

And the note continued, "Please let us know if we can help in any way with your real estate needs when the time is right". Can we sell your house? Audrey Smith, 72, died July 17 in hospital after a fall at a birthday party the day before.

Part of Ledecky's inspiration, as revealed in a Sports Illustrated profile in June, comes from the story of her Jewish grandmother, Berta, 83. Edward J. (Bud) Hagan and Kathleen Hagan-raised their family.

"I'm pumped, I was so close to breaking it [this morning]". For Franklin, it was the first chance to swim after sitting out the first two days. Her grandfather, Bud, graduated from the University of North Dakota's medical school.

When Katie was 10, Berta took her to a Jewish cemetery in Prague and showed her graves of her family members who died during the Holocaust.

Another aunt, Katie Keogh, earned an undergraduate degree and a master's in physical therapy from UND.

"It's so hard, knowing all the hard work you put in and then to get here and be so far behind", the 21-year-old said, minutes after leaving the Rio pool. "Last time was so unexpected".
