PureWow recently sat down with the 24-year-old swimming champion, who now has the most individual gold medals of any female U.S. Olympian ever, to chat about her latest partnership with BIC Soleil Razors for its “Game On” campaign. The initiative focuses on the importance of having self-confidence and not being afraid to show it in hopes of inspiring others.
During the interview, the gold medalist opened up about the effects the coronavirus pandemic had on getting ready for this year’s Games.
“The first couple of months the normal training facilities were shut down, so I swam in a neighbor’s backyard pool for about three months. But then the normal training facilities opened back up and I was able to get back into my normal routine which was great,” Ledecky said before revealing that the family was one she “hadn’t met before.”
