Canadian swimmer Summer McIntosh expresses discontent with leading the world in 400 free

17-Year-Old Summer McIntosh’s Impressive Start in Toronto Olympic Trials Leaves Competitors Behind, but She Strives for More

In Toronto, the 2024 Canadian Olympic & Paralympic Trials commenced with a strong impression from 17-year-old Summer McIntosh. On the first day, she won the women’s 400m free with a time of 3:59.06, beating her competitors by over 9 seconds. Julie Brousseau came in second with a time of 4:08.12, and Julia Stojnowska took the bronze with a time of 4:11.08.

McIntosh’s impressive performance made her the top-ranked swimmer in the world, surpassing Australia’s Ariarne Titmus who previously held this spot with a time of 3:59.13 at the Australia Open Championships. Furthermore, McIntosh’s time of 3:59.06 was also an improvement on her previous best time of 3:59.42.

Despite her outstanding performance, McIntosh expressed dissatisfaction with her swim in an interview following the race. She mentioned that she always strives for excellence and wanted more from her 400m freestyle swim, which shows that even when you are at the top of your game, there is always room for improvement.
