Maya DiRado received Gold in Women's 200 m backstroke

Team USA's Maya DiRado triggered a significant upset after winning a surprise gold medal in the women's 200m backstroke at the pool in Rio.

Hungary's Katinka Hosszu was longing for a 4th gold in the pool, However it was not to be and she needed to settle for the silver. Hosszu, called as 'The Iron Lady' had actually won the 100m backstroke, the 200m individual medley as well as the 400m

individual medley, but in Friday night's contest, she was caught in the final some meters as DiRado beat her by six hundredths of a second. Hilary Caldwell of Canada take bronze.
