Katie Ledecky withdrew from the 200-meter freestyle preliminaries and the 1,500 free final Tuesday at the world swimming championships in South Korea because of illness.

Her coach, Greg Meehan, said doctors were assessing Ledecky, but had no official diagnosis.

“She woke up this morning and she’s not feeling well at all,” he said. “I’m hopeful that we see her racing again this week.”

The eight-day meet ends Sunday.

Shortly after Meehan spoke to reporters came word that Ledecky was out of the evening’s 1,500 free final.

Ledecky was the fastest qualifier for the grueling event in 15 minutes, 48.90 seconds – 2.68 seconds faster than the next quickest swimmer. But she hasn’t been in the pool since Monday’s prelims.

U.S. national team managing director Lindsay Mintenko said Ledecky hasn’t been feeling well since she arrived in Gwangju on July 17.
