CHARLOTTE, North Carolina, May 18. AFTER breaking 1:00 in the 100-meter back during prelims at the Arena Grand Prix in Charlotte, Katinka Hosszu talks about how she sees prelims as just another chance to swim fast.

Hosszu had planned on beating a 1:00 during prelims, and managed to pull off the swim, while still coming back and winning during finals with an even faster time.

Hosszu was hurting on her third swim of the night in the 400 free, as she said it felt like a 4:30 and was happy with the 4:12.
