Australia’s Tamsin Cook clipped the meet record in the women’s 400-meter free at the 2015 FINA World Junior Championships.

Cook clocked a 4:06.17 for the gold, edging the 4:06.30 set by Elena Sokolova back in 2008 in Monterrey, Mexico.

She’s already the second-fastest 18-and-under behind the phenom Katie Ledecky’s world record of 3:59.13 from Worlds.

USA’s Sierra Schmidt collected silver in a time of 4:07.47 with Italy’s Linda Caponi rounding out the podium with at third-place time of 4:07.73.

      Exactly. It was only Ledecky’s 3rd best time.
