Katinka Hosszu finally claimed her first Olympic medal — and set a world record for good measure.

The Hungarian star, Katinka Hosszu known as “The Iron Lady” for her grueling schedule, crushed the former mark in the women’s 400-meter individual medley Saturday night at the Rio Games. She led all the way and touched in 4 minutes, 26.36 seconds, easily eclipsing the record of 4:28.43 held by China’s Ye Shiwen.
finished in 4:26.36 – breaking the World Record by more than two seconds. The old mark was a 4:28.43 done by Ye at the 2012 Olympics. This marks 4 out of the last 5 Olympics in which this World Record has been broken.

Katinka Hosszu had time to turn toward the scoreboard and savor her triumph before Maya DiRado of the United States touched in 4:31.15 to take the silver medal. Mireia Belmonte Garcia of Spain claimed the bronze in 4:32.39
