​IT'S A TIE! ​Katie Ledecky ​of Stanford and ​Mallory Comerford​ of Louisville swim matching 1:40.36's. Wow... Comerford just swam one of the most impassioned swims in recent memory. Most people don't stand toe to toe with the G.O.A.T, but Comerford did just that -- actually out-splitting Ledecky by 0.56 over the final 100 yards. With 10 yards to go, Comerford had the lead by a fingernail, and looked as if she was going to pull the upset, but Ledecky charged and touched simultaneously. ​Simone Manuel ​took it out first to the 100 with a 48.46, but faded a tad and touched for third in 1:40.70.​ Of note, 1:40.36 makes ​Ledecky and Comerford the second fastest performers in history, only behind ​Missy Franklin's​ 1:39.10 from 2015.
