CHARLOTTE, N.C. -- Hungary's Katina Hosszu pulled off an impressive double Friday night, while Americans Jessica Hardy and Mike Alexandrov also earned two wins apiece at the Charlotte Grand Prix.

Hosszu won the 200-meter freestyle in 1 minute, 56.30 seconds, holding off 2012 Olympic star Allison Schmitt. The Hungarian came back 68 minutes later to win the 400 individual medley in 4:37.85.

The performance was a bit overlooked on a night when Michael Phelps won the 100 butterfly, his first victory since coming out of retirement.

Hardy and Alexandrov swept the 50 and 100 breaststrokes.

For the men, Conor Dwyer took the 200 free, Chase Kalisz the 400 IM, and Junya Koga the 50 back. On the women's side, Katerine Savar won the 100 fly and Sveta Khakhlov of Belarus the 50 back.
