ATHENS, Greece -- Yana Klochkova of Ukraine won her second straight 400-meter individual medley at the Olympics, holding off American Kaitlin Sandeno by just the length of a hand Saturday night. The two swimmers made the final turn in virtually a dead heat, but Klochkova got to the wall first to become the first two-time winner of the women's 400 IM in Olympic history.
Klochkova, the world-record holder, took gold in 4 minutes, 34.83 seconds - just 12-hundredths of a second ahead of Sandeno.
Sandeno, of Lake Forest, Calif., claimed an American record with her
time of 4:34.95 and improved two places from her performance in Sydney,
where she finished fourth as an Olympic rookie.
