Olympic Swimmer Katie Ledecky Swam Across A Pool With A Glass Of Chocolate Milk Balanced On Her Head. And Here’s Why She Did That

By  | 

While plebeians like you and I are struggling to balance work-from-home and household chores, Olympic swimmer Katie Ledecky has a different kind of balancing on her mind. In a video that has gone viral, Ledecky can be seen swimming the lengths of an Olympic-sized swimming pool… while balancing a glass of chocolate milk on her head the entire time. I don’t know about you, but to me that is an astonishing feat and just the kind of motivation I needed to begin my week!

Katie Ledecky is an American swimmer who broke the world record in 400m and 800m freestyle swimming at the 2016 Rio Olympics. She holds the record for bagging the most number of individual medals for a female swimmer. But the Internet, where something incredible happens every other day, is totally stunned by what Katie has pulled off in this video she posted on her social media.

Calling it ‘possibly one of the best swims of her career’, Katie can be seen swimming her usual freestyle, without spilling even a drop of that milk!

If Katie Ledecky brought the chocolate milk, the Internet brought the compliment that she could dip in it and relish!

Now for those skeptics who wonder what made Ledecky undertake such a unique challenge…. Turns out, it was part of the #GotMilk challenge that is a rage on TikTok currently. The #GotMilk campaign has been around in the States since the 90s, and has over the years involved several celebrities posing with a glass of milk, often sporting a milk moustache with the caption ‘Got Milk?’. However, the campaign this year has targeted the social media-loving generation, with celebs like Ledecky finding creative ways to pose with milk.

The ad campaign part aside, Katie Ledecky’s feat is still an impressive one.

Makes me think we ought to get creative with our Olympic sports too, and introduce something as crazy as swimming laps while balancing things on one’s head!
