Mandeville, LA – The Veritas Radio Network is pleased to release our latest “Radio The Way It Should Be” advertisement featuring the Olympic Swimmer Katie Ledecky. Ledecky has now won 5 gold medals in 2 Olympics and is not only a great athlete but is a motivated Catholic as well. Ledecky told the Catholic Standard:

How has what you learned in Catholic schools helped you in your swimming career?

“I attended Catholic schools from pre-K through high school. I attended Little Flower School in Bethesda through 8th grade and then Stone Ridge School of the Sacred Heart for high school I received an excellent, faith-filled education at both schools. Having the opportunity to attend academically rigorous schools has facilitated my interest in the world and in serving others, and has enriched my life so that it is not solely focused on my swimming and athletics. Nevertheless, going to these schools was important to my swimming – my Catholic schools challenged me, they broadened my perspective and they allowed me to use my mind in ways that take me beyond just thinking about swim practices, swim meets and sports.

“Going to these schools also allowed me to make wonderful friends. Friends, teachers and administrators from my schools have all helped me meet my goals in swimming, and in life generally, by being supportive and caring. The importance of balance in one’s life is a lesson I have learned, and one that I hope will help me in college and beyond.”

How do you rely on your Catholic faith to sustain you through your training and racing?

“My Catholic faith is very important to me. It always has been and it always will be. It is part of who I am and I feel comfortable practicing my faith. It helps me put things in perspective.”

Do you still say a “Hail Mary” before each race? How did you decide upon the Hail Mary as your go-to prayer?

“I do say a prayer – or two – before any race. The Hail Mary is a beautiful prayer and I find that it calms me.”
