Katie Ledecky's impact away from competition at the 2018 Pan Pacific Swimming Championships

The Tokyo 2020 Summer Olympics are officially under two years away, which will mark Japan's fourth time hosting the Games. 

Just this week wrapped up the Pan Pacific Swimming Championships from Tokyo serving as a preview for not only next year's world championships, but the 2020 Games itself. 

21-year-old American swimming phenom Katie Ledecky continued to make her dominant presence felt finishing with three individual gold medals (400-, 800- and 1,500-meter freestyle races) in the meet.  The 1,500-meter wasn't even close. 

What she did with her time away from competition, though, was just as impactful. 

The Washington, D.C. native held a Sports Diplomacy swimming clinic in Setagaya Ward. This will be the site of Team USA training camps ahead of Tokyo 2020. 

The U.S. Department of State thanked Ledecky for "deepening US-Japan cultural bonds & educational exchanges." 

So far Ledecky has won five Olympic gold medals and 14 world championship gold medals, the most in history for a female swimmer. 

2019 World Swimming Championships are set to be held in Gwangju, South Korea next July.
