Swimming: Canada’s McIntosh Summer Wins World Cup Gold
Canada’s McIntosh Summer is back on the podium at the FINA Swimming World.
She finished first in the women’s 400 meters final on Saturday night at the Toronto Pan Am Sports Center.
McIntosh set a junior world record with a time of four minutes 21.49 seconds to lead a Canadian comeback.
“During the whole race, I felt really in control and strong so I’m really happy,” she said.
Halifax’s Sydney Pickrem was second in 4:28.45 and Bailey Andison of Smiths Falls, Ont., was third in 4:29.36.
McIntosh overtook American star Katie Ledecky in 400 free movies on Friday night. The 16-year-old from Toronto won in 3 hours 52.80 seconds – the second fastest time in history – to break her own Canadian short-lock record.
The contest continues through Sunday night. The World Cup circuit continues next weekend in Indianapolis.
