On Day Four of the 2015 LEN European Short Course Championships, Katinka Hosszu has scratched out the the championship final of the Women’s 200 scm free. The Hungarian’s move puts the full focus on the 200 IM, a world record she’s held at 2:01.86 since Doha last year. She’s no stranger to the top seed spot, her 1:53.39 in the 200 free placed her comfortably in the top spot, but she’s opted out for a chance to race her medley event at full capacity. She stepped up in prelims to swim the medley in 2:05.66 and was just off her 2013 meet record. She’ll also have to swim the semis of the Women’s 50 back but that’s warm-up for the Hungarian National Champion. With the way Hosszu’s been swimming at these championships, including her monster 400 and 100 IM record swim, she’s primed to challenge her previous mark.
