It is to be noted that Australian Kathryn Mitchell also trains with Hohn.

Not a bad rebound for a nation that finished 10th overall - and second in the Commonwealth to Great Britain - during the Rio Olympics in almost all the same events less than two years ago in which non-Commonwealth country US topped the chart 46 gold, 37 silver and 38 bronze for a total of 121 medals.
