Katie Ledecky continues to dominate women’s swimming.

The American won her second gold of the 2016 Olympics, thanks to a time of 1:53.73 in the 200-meter freestyle final Tuesday night in Rio de Janeiro.

It was a close race until Ledecky pulled away for the victory late, though. She outlasted silver medalist Sarah Sjostrom of Sweden and bronze medalist Emma McKeon of Australia.
