Women’s 400 Freestyle – Final – Reported by SwimSwam
Katinka Hosszu has already won her first two events, and you can tell she is really going after this swim. This 400 freestyle is less than 20 minutes after her second race of the evening; less than an hour since her first race. Leah Smith lead through the 200, and is looking great through the middle portion of this swim. Hosszu fell off with 100 to go. Allison Schmitt really went after it, looking the best I’ve seen her in a while. She ran away by herself in lane 7, winning the event with a time of 4:08.65. Gillian Ryan was able to run down Leah Smith to finish second at 4:09.10 with an aggressive final 100. Smith finished third at 4:09.13. Lotte Friis dropped close to three seconds to finish fourth at 4:10.02. We could say that Katinka Hosszu fell off, but she was only two seconds off her time from this morning, which is pretty impressive for her third race in less than an hour.
Hannah Moore won the B-final of the women’s 400 freestyle with a time of 4:13.33.
