Rio 2016 gold medalist Katinka Hosszu: 9 random facts you need to know

Four years after missing the medal podium entirely in a bitterly disappointing London Olympics, Hungarian star Katinka Hosszu opened a redemptive Rio Games by dominating the 400-meter individual medley and smashing the world record. Hosszu's winning time of 4:26.36 put her easily ahead of silver medalist Maya DiRado (4:31.15) of the United States and bronze medalist Mireia Belmonte Garcia (4:32.39) of Spain.

"I didn't want to just break the record," Hosszu said. "I wanted to crush it."
