The Olympic gold medalist and defending world champion Ye Shiwen was lucky to get fourth. She was eighth after 150 meters. Remember, Ye came under scrutiny at the 2012 Olympics for swimming a faster final 50 meters in her 400 IM victory than Ryan Lochte did in his. Katinka Hosszu opted out of a potential medal in the 100 back to focus on this event. It paid off big time. Alicia Coutts won her second silver of the night.
