Summary

Swimming World magazine called the race wide open and listed seven different swimmers as medal contenders. The 2015 World Champion was Japan’s [Natsumi Hoshi], while Australian [Madeline Groves] had the top time of the year coming into Rio with 2:05.47. The magazine called Spain’s [Mireia Belmonte] a “wild card” but in the end she would take gold, narrowly outtouching Groves in 2:04.85 to 2:04.88. Hoshi came in for the bronze medal. One swimmer who would have challenged for gold was Hungarian [Katinka Hosszú] but she could not swim the race because of schedule conflicts as the 200 fly semis and 200 IM finals were on the same night.
