Hungary’s Katinka Hosszu put up an easy speed win in the women’s 400-meter IM at the 2016 Arena Pro Swim Series Austin.

Hosszu turned in a time of 4:36.27.  That’s only a second drop after prelims.  It was expected that she would challenge the record for the fastest time in January ever currently held by Aimee Willmott with a 4:33.64 from the 2014 Speedo Cup.

That’s Hosszu’s first paycheck of the meet following a stunning pair of podium misses on day one.

NBAC’s Becca Mann turned in a swift second-place swim of 4:39.03 with Aggie’s Sarah Henry taking third overall in 4:40.92.

SwimMAC’s Cammile Adams took fourth in 4:4.4105 with Texas’ Madisyn Cox placing fifth in 4:43.46.

California’s Caitlin Leverenz (4:43.54), BlueFish’s Elizabeth Beisel (4:44.02) and Texas A&M’s Sydney Pickrem (4:45.34) also swam in the A final.

Queens’ Patricia Castro Ortega won the B final in a time of 4:45.34.  NCAP’s Cassidy Bayer placed second in 4:47.88 with Nitro’s Regan Barney touching third in 4:48.99.
