Hosszu was the most medalled woman with five golds and two silvers, only missing the podium in one race — the 50m butterfly — in her final event.
Hosszu’s opening swim of the night, the 400m IM, registered 4:27.60, and was nearly seven seconds off her Berlin world-record pace. She seemed to tire over the freestyle leg as Britain’s Hannah Miley (4:28.75) and Spain’s Mireia Belmonte (4:28.90) hunted her down. However, it was good enough for a sixth straight 400m IM victory.
“Medals from Singapore. I’m really happy with my times, I was able to break three Hungarian national records! Thank you for all the support! And tomorrow we are leaving for Tokyo.”, Hosszu published this post on Facebook.
She won the 100m backstroke over Australia’s Emily Seebohm, was out-touched for gold by German Franziska Hentke in the 200m butterfly after winning the previous five editions, and had a rapid start to the 50m butterfly, but fatigue set in and she finished last.
