Canada’s Summer McIntosh and American Katie Ledecky weren’t sure what to expect in their first competitive event of the season at this week’s FINA Swimming World Cup in Toronto.

McIntosh set a world junior mark in the women’s 400-metre individual medley while Ledecky set a world record in the 1,500m freestyle on Saturday night at the Toronto Pan Am Sports Centre.
“I knew that record was within reach just based on some things I’ve done in training, especially my distance stuff [as it] has felt really good this fall,” Ledecky said.
