Summary

[Kornelia Ender] was the 1975 World Champion and the world record holder and was heavily favored in this event, and came through as expected, equalling her world record. But the final was a bit closer than expected as she was challenged by her teammate [Andrea Pollack], only 15-years-old, who only a few days before had won the 200 fly, and won the silver medal in this race. Ender finished the 100 fly at 1948, and a few minutes later stood on the medal podium. Twenty minutes after this race ended she came back to the pool deck for the final of the 200 freestyle. A few minutes after that, she had won her second individual gold medal within 27 minutes. Ender would finish the Montréal Olympics with four gold medals, adding gold in the 100 freestyle and medley relay, and a silver in the 4×100 freestyle relay.
