Watch: Summer McIntosh Swims Fourth-Fastest 400 IM in History (Day 3 Race Videos)

2022 U.S. OPEN SWIMMING CHAMPIONSHIPS

Friday Finals Heat Sheets

Day three of the 2022 U.S. Open featured strong swims, including an incredible race by Canadian Olympian Summer McIntosh who was 1.51 seconds ahead of the world record pace after the butterfly in the 400 IM. The 16-year-old hit the wall first with a time of 4:28.61, setting a new world junior record and coming within 2.3 seconds of Katinka Hosszu‘s world record. McIntosh simultaneously cracked the Americas record and Commonwealth record, notching the fourth-fastest long course 400 IM performance in history.

Olympic gold medalist Katie Ledecky had a close race with 18-year-old Erin Gemmell in the 200 free, where Ledecky ultimately touched the wall first, winning her third of three events so far this meet.

Olympian and recent 2022 World Championships bronze medalist Chase Kalisz broke his second championship record of the meet, winning the men’s 400 IM with an eight-second lead. Olympic medalist Regan Smith had an impressive double swim Friday night, taking gold first in the 100 fly and then later in the 100 back where she set a championship record. This was a huge swim for Smith who beat the time she swam to win gold at the 2022 World Championships and the time she swam to win bronze at the Tokyo Olympics.

Daniel Diehl, who turned 17 years old in October, took down the 17-18 national age group record in the men’s 100 back. He touched the wall first with a time that undercut the previous record which he set in prelims by .04.

Does Summer’s backstroke turn (at 150m) complies with the regulations? Does not really matter here in a smaller race though.
I think she does not stop her legs after turning to her stomach before the wall.

While there are lots of local “interpretations” about kicking on the backstroke turn, there is no rule against it.

Thanks ;-). Interesting, I have always been reminded not to do it otherwise i might be DQd. And I only take part on senior meets. 😀

Someone might want to ensure Omega knows that Summer is Canadian. In the records section of the posted results under World Junior record they have her as USA… yes this is the former record but I wonder if they have an error in their database? Unless she has switched countries and I’ve missed it?

Also just noticed the country code is wrong in the records section of the 200 butterfly as well… so I think they must have it wrong in their database.

For this event Omega’s database would show Summer representing Sarasota so presumably it shows USA under her name by default in the programming.

If Summer wasn’t tapered for this one, I’m sticking with my prediction that she’ll break the WR by June/July with a 4:25 low.

She can definitely take a few seconds off her breaststroke 100, and if she wasn’t tapered, this becomes even more exciting 🙂

Improvement on her turns alone guarantees her that WR.
