National Swimming Trials | Another world record for Summer McIntosh

It continues well for Summer McIntosh at the National Trials in Toronto. The 16-year-old prodigy broke another world mark Saturday night, this time in the 400-meter medley.

I touched the low wall, and stopped the clock at 4:25.87. It broke the previous record by almost half a second. A mark of 4:26.36 was set by Katinka Hosszu in 2016.

“It was the first time I really heard the crowd on the run,” said McIntosh, who waved to the crowd after emerging from the pool.

It’s amazing to have all my family and friends in the stands cheering for me. You really helped me in the last 100 metres.

Macintosh Summer

Heading into Saturday night, McIntosh’s best in the event was 4:28.61.

It is therefore the Canadian’s second world record in the trials. On Tuesday evening, I made history in the 400-meter freestyle.

The Macintosh has been dazzling the show since the competition’s inception, at home. In addition to the two world records, she also set junior world records in the 200-meter medley and 200-meter butterfly.
