Hungary’s Katinka Hosszu doubled up with a win in the women’s 200-meter IM at the 2016 Arena Pro Swim Series Austin.

Hosszu posted a winning time of 2:10.69, which would have ranked her ninth in the world last year if not for her world-record setting time of 2:06.12.

Hosszu still missed the January record for the 200 IM of 2:09.67 set by Ye Shiwen at the 2013 BHP Super Series event.

Saint Petersburg’s Melanie Margalis closed fast with a second-place time of 2:12.67, while Aggie’s Sarah Henry earned third in 2:12.77.

SwimMAC’s Kirsty Coventry (2:12.86), Texas A&M’s Sydney Pickrem (2:14.04), Texas’ Madisyn Cox (2:14.05), California’s Caitlin Leverenz (2:14.27) and Great Britain’s Georgia Coates (2:15.50) also competed in the finale.

Lakeside’s Brooke Forde topped the B final in a time of 2:15.04.  California’s Celina Li (2:15.50) and Kelly Naze (2:15.72) placed second and third.
