(NBC)–Gold medalist Katie Ledecky is back in the D.C. area, and she has some new hardware with her.
Ledecky was greeted by a mob of fans at Dulles International Airport Wednesday.
The Bethesda, Maryland, native won four gold medals in Rio, smashed her own world record in the 400-meter freestyle and broke an Olympic record in the 800m freestyle during the preliminary heats.
Additionally, Ledecky anchored the silver medal 4×100-meter freestyle relay and the gold medal 4×200-meter freestyle relay. In her last event, Ledecky crushed her own world record in the 800-meter freestyle Friday night.
Ledecky says she accomplished all the goals she set for Rio even though they were a little “out there.”
“I pretty much met my goals to the nose,” Ledecky told Ryan Seacrest Tuesday.
