Ariarne Titmus of Australia further sealed her status as one of the most dominant freestyle swimmers in the world, as the 21-year-old just nailed a 400m freestyle victory here on the final night of competition at the 2022 Commonwealth Games.
Stopping the clock in a time of 3:58.06, Titmus earned one of two times under the 4:00 barrier, with Canadian superstar Summer McIntosh, just 15 years of age, snagging silver in a new World Junior Record time of 3:59.32.
For Titmus, her time tonight in Birmingham checks in as a new Commonwealth Games record, overtaking the previous standard of 4:00.93 she logged herself 4 years ago in the Gold Coast.
In terms of her already-prolific career, tonight’s 3:58.06 performance represents the 4th fastest time of the Dean Boxall-trained star’s career and the 7th fastest performance of all time. She owns the current World Record in the 3:56.40 she produced just earlier this year at the Australian Trials.
