Tokyo/UNI/Xinhua: Japanese swimmer Yui Ohashi shook off a slow start to win her second gold at the Tokyo Olympics, triumphing in the women's 200m individual medley.

The 25-year-old won the host's first swimming gold on home soil in the 400m IM and added another here on Wednesday in two minutes and 08.52 seconds.

Ohashi, who placed only fifth after the butterfly split, beat Alex Walsh of the United States to second in freestyle by 0.13 seconds.

The other American swimmer Kate Douglass took the bronze, clocking 2:09.04.

China's 15-year-old YU Yiting led in the first 100m but finished fifth at last. Hungary's world record holder Katinka Hosszu came in the seventh place.
