W400IM: Katinka Hosszu Delivers Twin 4:30.9 Efforts In Heat & Final To Retain Crown

Katinka Hosszu of Hungary ohne way to gold No1 in London today - by Patrick B. Kraemer

Last on her blocks and clapping her hands in a gesture that spoke both of self-motivation and sending a message of “this ones got my name on it” to rivals, Katinka Hosszu (HUN) was not about to let dominance abandon her. On 4:30.97 in heats, the World champion retained the crown in 4:30.90 for her second Championship record of the day. The silver went to Hannah Miley (GBR) in 4:35.27, bronze to Zsuzsanna Jakabos (HUN) in 4:38.39

Hosszu’s London breaststroke split is wrong. Should be 1:18.23.

Thanks Clive

Hosszu is in another realm for me.

Goes 4:30 twice in a day in the 400 and still has enough left in the tank to come back, win her 200 Back semi and go into the final 3rd fastest, despite only having the mens 100 breast semis as a rest. Absolutely remarkable.

I doubt any of our lot would be able to do that.

Craig Lord

I doubt it, too, Alex – and not just ‘our lot’ but ‘most, the great bulk of, lot’.
