Every session of the world swimming championships airs live on Peacock, through Sunday in Fukuoka, Japan.

Katie Ledecky, who owns a female record 25 world championships medals, can break her tie with Michael Phelps at a record 15 individual world titles with a sixth consecutive 800m free crown Saturday.

Already at worlds, Frenchman Leon Marchand broke Phelps’ last individual world record in the 400m individual medley, then took gold in the 200m butterfly and 200m IM to cement his status as the world’s best swimmer going into a home Olympics in Paris.

Other headliners this weekend include Americans in their Olympic gold-medal events: Ryan Murphy (200m backstroke) and Bobby Finke (1500m free), plus Lilly King defending her 200m breast world title.
