CHARLOTTE, North Carolina, May 17. IT took an Olympic gold medalist to put an end to Katinka Hosszu’s run of victory here at the Arena Grand Prix here in Charlotte, and Allison Schmitt served that role quite well as Hosszu completely ran out of gas in the women’s 400-meter free.

Schmitt put up a 4:08.65 for the win in the finale, while Hosszu fell off the pace badly at the 250-meter mark before taking eighth overall in 4:12.86.

Schmitt’s training partner Gillian Ryan nearly made up the distance with a second-place 4:09.10 as she clocked a 29.86 on the way home. Cavalier’s Leah Smith rounded out the top three with a 4:09.13.

NBAC’s Lotte Friis (4:10.02), Cierra Runge (4:01.77) and Becca Mann (4:10.82) took fourth through sixth, while SEAL’s Chloe Sutton earned seventh in the event with a 4:11.26.

Hannah Moore edged Andreina Pinto, 4:13.33 to 4:13.50, for the B final. Lindsay Vrooman finished third in the heat with a 4:14.69.

Ashley Steenvoorden (4:14.86), Sam Cheverton (4:16.01), Elizabeth Beisel (4:17.19), Vien Nguyen (4:18.10) and Jessica Thielmann (4:18.25) also competed in the consolation finale.
