WOMEN’S 400 IM – FINAL

World record holder Katinka Hosszu was DQed in this race, but would have won in 4:33.31 – we’re hearing she missed a wall during the backstroke leg. Hosszu dropped the 100 back today to focus on the 400 IM. She already holds the No. 3 time in the world this season at 4:32.52.
