From our own Lauren Neidigh‘s day 6 finals recap:


  • WR: 2:19.11 Rikke Moeller Pedersen (DEN) 1 AUG 2013 Barcelona (ESP)
  • WJ: 2:22.66 Viktoria Gunes (TUR) 5 JUL 2015 Vichy (FRA)
  • CR: 2:23.12 Viktoriya Solntseva (UKR) 31 AUG 2013 Dubai (UAE)

In the finals of the women’s 200 breast, Turkey’s Viktoria Gunes put on a performance that was perhaps the most impressive swim of the entire meet. Gunes came in as the Junior World Record holder at 2:22.66. She obliterated that time tonight with a 2:19.64, closing in on Rikke Moeller Pedersen’s World Record of 2:19.11.

That was a new Junior World Record and Championship Record for Gunes, who finished almost 5 seconds ahead of anybody else. Russia went 2-3 with Mariia Astashkina‘s 2:24.57 and Sofia Andreeva‘s 2:24.88.

Japan’s Runa Imai was 4th in 2:25.52, with her teammate Yukino Miyasaka (2:29.50) finishing 8th. Italy’s Giulia Verona was 5th with a 2:25.90. Behind her was Britain’s Katie Matts (2:27.41) and Georgia Coates (2:28.31).
