On a penultimate night of action at U.S. Championships in Indianapolis, Katie Ledecky carved out another world-title defence with a world-ranks leading 3:58.44 in the 400m freestyle at the helm of a rush of speed on the way to the global showdown in Budapest from July 23-30. Day 4 highlights included Zane Grothe changing gear to become a member of the league of leading 400m men with a 3:44.43 lifetime best victory, Lilly King compling a breaststroke sweep in 1:04.95 over 100m, Kevin Cordes setting a national 100m breaststroke record at 58.74 and Kathleen Baker a meet record of 58.57. And there there was the return to the national team of London 2012 Olympic champion Matt Grevers, who defeated the 2016 Olympic champion Ryan Murphy 52.71 to 53.01 in the 100m backstroke to complete an evening of soaring swimming challenge.
