In the women's 400, it was Italy's defending champion Federica Pellegrini reaching the halfway mark in fifth place. But she finished strongly to take victory in a time of four minutes 4.01 seconds.

Britain's Olympic champion Rebecca Adlington had to swim in lane one after a poor qualifying race, but she edged out France's Camille Muffat by 3-one-hundredths of a second for second place.
