Katie Ledecky is 5' 10" tall and at the age of 15 will become a high school sophomore at Stone Ridge School of the Sacred Heart after she goes home to Bethesda, Maryland. She is the youngest American olympian in London and was not expected to even medal. She merely swam the second fastest 800 meter freestyle of all time and and won the gold.

For sure, money is now not a problem, for all indications are that she will earn up to $10 million over the next few years:
