An excellent strategy from Katinka Hosszu. If a main target is 400IM, which is on the last day at the meeting, what else could you do than add as many secondary events as possible before that main target. Katinka! This is the World Championships, not a World Cup. Her schedule would have been perfect if she had swum only 200m fly, 200m IM and 400m IM in which she possesses good prospects for a medal.
