Walsh held Yu Yiting from China (2: 09.72), Japanese Yui Ohashi (2: 09.79) and Canada’s Sydney Pickrem (2nd place) : 09.96), who came back after retiring from the 400 IM for non-COVID-related medical reasons.

Pickrem described the disease as less of a concern, more like a withdrawal with three single events on their plate.

« I feel good, » said Pickrem. “It’s definitely just one step, just a semi-final and reaching the final, trying to be good, better, best. And hopefully tomorrow I can show my best and know that there is a lot more to be given. I’m happy to be in this final, it will be a great race. ”

The Hungarian Katinka Hosszu finished fifth in the first run (2: 01.22) and after second place made it up to into the final.

The British Abbie Wood came second in the heat in 2: 09.56 in front of her compatriot Alicia Wilson, who crossed the finish line in 2: 10.59.

« Tomorrow morning there will be a second between the entire field, which will be really exciting and tight » said Wood. “And I think it will really be everyone’s race that is stressful but exciting at the same time. I feel like the ISL allowed me to do a lot of race training and it really boosted my confidence so I think it’s a great stepping stone to dealing with the Olympics. « 

 » Me think this event has changed a lot in the last two years or so, « said Walsh. “I wouldn’t say it’s wide open. I think tomorrow will be a pretty brutal fight for the medals, but I’m ready to take on Kate and I’m really excited to see what we can do. ”
