Hungary’s Katinka Hosszu clinched yet another gold medal with a meet record in the women’s 200-meter IM at the 2016 European Championships.

Hosszu clocked a top time of 2:07.30.  That swim cleared her meet record of 2:08.11 from 2014.  It also beat her top-ranked 2:07.69 from earlier this year at the Golden Tour.

Overall, that’s tied for the sixth best time ever in the event: Hosszu (2:06.12), Ariana Kukors (2:06.15), Hosszu (2:06.84), Kukors (2:07.03), Stephanie Rice (2:07.03), Hosszu (2:07.30 x2).

Great Britain’s Siobhan-Marie O’Connor (2:09.03) and Hannah Miley (2:11.84) claimed the rest of the podium times.  O’Connor bettered her third-ranked season best of 2:09.66 in the process.

Italy’s Sara Franceschi (2:12.59), Hungary’s Evelyn Verraszto (2:12.91), Italy’s Carlotta Toni (2:13.17), The Netherlands’ Wendy van den Zanden (2:13.31) and Switzerland’s Maria Ugolkova (2:13.37) also put up times in the finale.
