SWIM­MING: Stan­ford’s Katie Ledecky of Bethesda broke two NCAA records, as well as her own Amer­i­can record in the 1,650-yard freestyle, at a meet at Ohio State. In her first month as a col­lege swim­mer, Ledecky’s record swim of 15:03.92 in the 1,650 free shat­tered the NCAA mark by nearly 20 sec­onds, and her Amer­i­can record by nearly 10, while win­ning the race by four laps and more than a minute. In ad­di­tion, she was cred­ited with an NCAA record at 1,000 yards, as her split beat the record at that dis­tance that she had set ear­lier this month. Ledecky, a five-time Olympic gold medal­ist and nine-time world cham­pion, will be in New York tonight for the an­nual Golden Gog­gle awards. HORSE RAC­ING: Live rac­ing at Lau­rel Park was can­celed af­ter the run­ning of the first race be­cause of ex­tremely windy con­di­tions. “We de­cided to err on the side of cau­tion,” said Sal Si­na­tra, pres­i­dent and gen­eral man­ager of the Mary­land Jockey Club. “The winds were very strong; there was some de­bris fly­ing around. The safety of our jock­eys and our horses is our ut­most pri­or­ity.” Windy con­di­tions also forced the can­cel­la­tion of full cards at other Mid-At­lantic and North­east race­tracks. —
