SANTA CLARA, Calif.- International swimming stars are learning they should keep an eye on Canadian teenager Emily Overholt after the 17-year-old collected two more silver medals in personal best times at the Pro Swim Series competition on Saturday.

In the women’s 200-m butterfly, three-time world champion Katinka Hosszu of Hungary built a solid lead by the halfway mark and won the gold in 2:09.77. Vancouver’s Overholt followed in 2:10.75 bettering her previous best by over two seconds. Lauren Case of the U.S. was third in 2:11.06.

About an hour later, Hosszu took the 400-m freestyle in 4:07.17 with Overholt second in 4:07.93 which was also a two second improvement on her previous best time. Cierra Runge of the U.S. was third in 4:08.77.

On Friday, Overholt was also second to Hosszu in the 400-m IM.

Competition ends Sunday.
