In true form, Katie Ledecky manhandled the competition in the 400 free, clocking in at 3:59.95 to post one of the fastest times in the world this year. Surging several body lengths ahead of her closest competitor, Madisyn Cox (4:10.91), Ledecky dropped a time merely three and a half seconds off her world record–in May.

Brooke Forde managed to get her hand on the wall third, crashing the pads at 4:11.91 to take down Hannah Moore (4:11. 95) by four hundredths of a second. Sierra Schmidt shaved a little time off of her morning swim, posting a 3:13.66 to break into the top five. Ally McHugh followed close behind with a 4:14.75 to beat Megan Byrnes (4:15.46). Joanna Evans topped off a loaded heat with an impressive 4:16.47.
