GOLD LORANDI Elodie FRA - France

BRONZE SCOTT Susan Beth USA - United States of America

LONDON, 5 September

"I was very stressed from the beginning to the end but I was pleased to have another French swimmer in the race, too (seventh-placed Anaelle ROULET)."
"The 400 metres is my best race. It's a very strategic race, you can see what's happening. My coach said to me, 'If you have it in you, you need to accelerate after 200 metres. I felt I had a rush of adrenaline and I went for it. It worked."
- Elodie LORANDI (FRA) - gold.
