Swimming Women – 400m Individual Medley | Top Moments | FINA World Championships 2019 – Gwangju


History was made as Katinka Hosszu changed gear and left her rivals behind over the breaststroke leg of the 400m IM final at the FINA World Championships 2019 in Gwangju. The Hungarian won with ease once again and became the first swimmer at the Worlds who could achieve double golds in the same stroke at four Worlds in a row.

Besides, that was her 5th title in the same event, a feat only Michael Phelps could achieve at the World Championships before (in the 200m fly). Hosszu won this event for the first time in Rome 2009 as a 20-year old youngster and has been enjoying a quiet eventful decade ever since.
