Swimmers Maya DiRado, Simone Manuel & Katie Ledecky Pick Up Silver Medals in Rio!

Maya DiRado reacts upon seeing her time from the pool during the 2016 Rio Summer Olympics on Saturday (August 6) in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.

The 23-year-old swimmer finished second, winning the silver medal in the Women’s 400m Individual Medley at the Olympic Aquatics Stadium.

“I knew Katinka [Hosszu from Hungary] was very far ahead, and I could see that when I turned for freestyle, I was ahead of the rest of the field, so I didn’t really worry about her,” Maya shared afterwards. “I haven’t seen my splits yet, but it doesn’t really matter because I got a silver medal, and I’m so thrilled with that!”

Later, Simone Manuel and her team — Abbey Weitzeil, Dana Vollmer and Katie Ledecky — also picked up the silver medal for the Women’s 4 x 100m Freestyle Relay.
