Riverside, California 2021-07-25 22:35:46 –

This is the first of several confrontations in Tokyo.

Washington — Australia’s Arian Titoms defeated the American Katie Ledecky in the 400-meter freestyle at the Tokyo Olympics.

Titmus won one of the most anticipated races in the game and won the gold medal in the second fastest time in history.

Titmuss, who dragged almost the whole body at the midpoint of the eight-lap race, turned on the touch speed at 3 minutes 56.69 seconds.

This time, Olympic champion and world record holder Katie Ledecky won the silver medal at 3:57:36. This is the fourth fastest time in history.

No one else was nearby. Bronze went to Li Bingjie in China at 4: 01.08.

This is the first of several confrontations in Tokyo.

Ledecky won a world record time of 400 frees in Rio five years ago. Australian swimming rising star Titmuss defeated Ledecky at the 2019 World Championships.

The American team at Powerhouse made a remarkable start at the Tokyo Aquatics Center, winning six of the twelve medals on the first day of the final. This was more than they won on the first day of Michael Phelps’ illustrious career, including the last five Olympics.

Phelps has retired from competition after the 2016 Rio de Janeiro Games and is commenting on the American broadcaster NBC at these Olympics.
