USA’s Missy Franklin took down the American record as she edged Euro’s MVP Katinka Hosszu in the women’s 200-meter free for Hosszu’s first loss at the 2015 Duel in the Pool.

Franklin clocked a time of 1:52.74 for the win, clipping Katie Hoff’s 2010 record of 1:52.91.  The swim pushed Franklin up to 10th all time in the race’s history.

Hosszu placed second in 1:52.79, well back of her lifetime best of 1:51.18 that puts her third all time.

Euro’s Siobhan-Marie O’Connor placed third overall in 1:53.82.

USA’s Melanie Margalis (1:54.35), USA’s Leah Smith (1:55.33) and Euro’s Hannah Miley (1:57.08) also swam in the heat.
