The Lofty Expectations Set for Simone Biles and Katie Ledecky in Tokyo

With 11 Olympic medals between Simone Biles and Katie Ledecky, it seems anything short of a gold medal sweep in Tokyo would be a disappointment. The pair were favored to win an astounding 11 more gold medals in Tokyo. Though she received the highest aggregate score of any participating gymnast, Biles says she's feeling "the weight of the world" after Team USA finished second in qualifying. Ledecky lost for the first time in her Olympic career, taking silver in the 400-meter freestyle.
