And here I thought things might slow down a little bit after Kate Douglass and Leon Marchand broke yards swimming for everyone. SHAME ON ME.
On night 1 of the Canadian World Trials, Summer McIntosh reminded you why she is still coming on very strong at just 16 years old, breaking her fist world record in the 400 free in 3:56.08.
McIntosh swam 3:56.08, which broke Titmus’ record of 3:56.40, set at the 2022 Australian Swimming Championships.
McIntosh’s first 200 meter split of 1:55.91 would have won a bronze medal at last year’s World Championships.

I’m still in shock.
Interesting, all the time drop come from the first 200 while the 2nd 200 almost exactly the same ( old record was 0.01s faster!). Maybe seeing a charging Titmus will give Summer the extra drive for the finish.
Titmus could beat her but she would have to stay close enough so that she could outkick Summer down the stretch.
Titmus swam the last 50 in Tokyo in an absolute frenzy and split a 29.1. At the touch she looked over at Ledecky’s lane to make sure she had touched first. She did not care about the time, only that she had touched first.
Titmus may not have the fire inside her to do that again. But she knows how to pace a 400 better than anyone.
Everyone is talking about the 200 free and 200 IM but I am excited to see her 400 IM
I wouldn’t be the least bit surprised if she breaks that world record this year. Maybe mildly if she breaks it this week, but it wouldn’t be a huge surprise.
Best scene from Tokyo Olympics.
Thank you for the link.
Thank you for the link! Love the Canadian announcers too =)
Her turns are sublime. Watch the power off the wall on that last turn. Incredible athlete
Her turns have improved during her time in Sarasota.
Titmus now has to step up. It would be grand to see McIntosh break Pellegrini’s 200 free record.
