Simona Quadarella secured her second gold medal in the women’s 1,500 freestyle at the 2024 World Championships. Despite the absence of Katie Ledecky, who has been a dominant force in the event, Quadarella’s victory was still noteworthy. She controlled the field from start to finish and won by more than nine seconds, finishing with a time of 15:46.99.

This marked Quadarella’s second gold medal and sixth total Worlds medal. Her first gold came in Gwangju in 2019 when Ledecky withdrew due to injury. The silver medal went to China’s Li Bingjie, who surged ahead of Germany’s Isabel Gose to claim second place. Gose took the bronze, adding to her 400 free bronze medal.

Katie Ledecky’s absence did not take away from Quadarella’s impressive performance, but it is clear that Ledecky’s dominance in the event is difficult to overlook. Gose, who had finished sixth last year at Worlds, moved up to win bronze this time. Other finalists included France’s Anastasiya Kirpichnikova, who finished fifth, and New Zealand’s Eve Thomas, who took fourth place.
