Ariarne Titmus turned it into a gold double to beat Katie Ledecky and win the gold medal in the women’s 200m freestyle.

When Ariarne Titmus vs Katie Ledecky was big in the 400m, the 200m repechage peaked with interest in a record high in women’s swimming, despite there being no crowds in Tokyo.

Titmus famously came from behind in the 400 and in the shorter event, she didn’t have time to try the same tactics – instead, she went bat-for-battle with Ledecky.

Ledecky was the defending champion in the 200m, but both swimmers went out slowly for the first round.

Halfway through, Titmus was fifth and Ledecky seventh.

Ariarne then made her move and Ledecky couldn’t follow.

Hong Kong swimmer Siobhan Bernadette Haughey eventually became her biggest challenger, but Titmus found something late to send home.

Katie Ledecky finished fifth.

It was an Olympic record for Titmus in 1:53:90 and confirmed her place as Australian swimming legend.
