US Open Swimming | Mackintosh and Lindow won the silver

(GREENSBORO) Canada’s Summer McIntosh and Josh Lindo captured the silver medal at the US Open Swimming Championships on Thursday.


McIntosh was leading in the final turn, but could not hold out in the final stretch of the 400-meter freestyle.

American Katie Ledecky, the world champion, set a distance record by stopping the clock at 3:59.71. McIntosh (3:59.79) swam under four minutes for the third time in his career.

McIntosh beat Ledecky over the same distance last month at the World Cup Short Course in Toronto.

American Michaela Mathis (4:09.53) won the bronze medal, while Katrina Pellew of Ontario (4:16.77) came in seventh.

Lindo finished behind American David Curtis in the men’s 50m.

Curtis took the gold medal with a time of 21.92 seconds. Lindo followed in 21.99, while Brazilian Victor Alcarra took the third step of the podium after a time of 22.11.

The 20-year-old Lindo has won three World Championship medals and four Commonwealth Games medals.

Pellew also finished seventh in the 800-meter freestyle (8:43.24). In the same men’s discipline, Quebec’s Eric Brown posted the sixth fastest time (8:04.47).

The competition continues through Saturday.
