The ridiculousness of Katie Ledecky's 400m world record, in photos

This is the most dominating performance in Rio, so far.

This is Katie Ledecky, she’s the best swimmer in the world.

On Sunday, she smashed the record in the women's 400-meter freestyle with a time of three minutes and 56.46 seconds. Whose record did she break? Oh right, her own.

This sounds impressive, but in photos it looks downright ridiculous.

Look how far ahead she is!

She finished so long before everyone else that she’s already celebrating while they’re still swimming.

Hahahaha see? Just look at this.

Pretty impressive, when you consider what she’s up against ...
