17-Year-Old Anastasia Gorbenko Cracks Israeli 200 IM Record Again with 2:09.99


Israeli star Anastasia Gorbenko, 17, broke yet another Israeli Record at these European Championships. Gorbenko won Gold in the women’s 200 IM, tearing to a new personal best of 2:09.99. Gorbenko entered the meet with a lifetime best of 2:11.92, which she swam at the 2019 World Championships in Gwangju, South Korea, and stood as the Israeli Record until this morning. In semifinals, Gorbenko clocked a 2:10.35, breaking her own record by 1.57 seconds.

Here is a split comparison between Gorbenko’s record-breaking semifinals swim, and her faster, Gold medal-winning finals swim:
