Katinka Hosszu Make a New Olympic Record in Women’s 200m Individual Medley finals

The Journey Of A Successful Swimmer To The Podium Is Possible Only With Its Mental Patience

Siobhan-Marie O’Connor looked in great form today in the heats of the 200m Individual Medley on day three of the Rio 2016 Olympic Games.

The University of Bath swimmer was just outside of her personal best time, touching in 2:08.44 to finish just a second behind Kanitnka Hosszú of Hungary. Hosszú’s time was a new Olympic record, and the Hungarian had already set a new world record and claimed an Olympic bronze in the Women’s 400m IM on day two.

Kanitnka Hosszú won the 400m individual medley in Rio Olympics with a new world record time of four minutes, 26.36 seconds; she lowered the existing record by 2.07 seconds.

O’Connor looks good for a medal if she can continue current form, and the semi-finals tonight should make for some exciting races. She is the current British record holder for the Women’s 200m Individual Medley.
