2012 — China’s Ye Shiwen sets the first world record at the Olympic pool, winning the women’s 400-meter individual medley with a dominant finishing kick. The 16-year-old Ye, trailing American teenager Elizabeth Beisel more than halfway through, pulls away to win in 4:28.43. She beat the mark of 4:29.45 set by Stephanie Rice at the 2008 Beijing Olympics.
