The sensational Hungarian ace, Katinka Hosszu has her sights firmly focussed on Rio 2016

Katinka Hosszu of Hungary won gold in the women’s 400 metres individual medley at the world championships in Barcelona on Sunday to follow up on her triumph over 200 metres earlier in the week.

Hosszu clocked four minutes 30.41 seconds to reclaim the title she won in 2009, with Mireia Belmonte Garcia of Spain delighting the home fans by taking silver in 4:31.21.

Defending champion Elizabeth Beisel of the United States claimed the bronze in 4:31.69, while Ye Shiwen of China, the Olympic champion and world record holder, could only manage seventh in 4:38.51.
