Local World Champion: Kate Ziegler

Kate Ziegler is 17 and a senior at Bishop O’Connell High School here in the greater DC area. She’s also the fastest woman in the world in the 1500m freestyle. She recorded the third fastest time in history yesterday in Montreal at the World Championships, just behind Janet Evans’ monster record and Hannah Stockbauer’s herculean effort five years ago.

Way to go Kate! Promise us you’ll show us the medal when you get back next week!

I live and work in the District of Columbia. I write at We Love DC, a blog I helped start, I work at Technolutionary, a company I helped start, and I’m happy doing both. I enjoy watching baseball, cooking, and gardening. I grow a mean pepper, keep a clean scorebook, and wash the dishes when I’m done. Read Why I Love DC.
