Japan made big moves in the medal table on day 3, as they’re now tied with the USA as the leaders in the gold medal count with 3 golds. In terms of total medals, the Japanese now trail the USA (8) by just one medal, bringing their number up from 3 to 7 with their performances tonight. In the women’s 100 breast, Kanako Watanabe and Reona Aoki put together a 1-2 punch. Kosuke Hagino and Daiya Seto followed that up with another gold and silver combo for Japan in the 200 IM.
Earning their first medals today were Hong Kong (Siobhan Haughey – women’s 100 free gold), Hungary (Gergely Gyurta – men’s 1500 free bronze) and Poland (Kacper Majchrzak – men’s 200 free silver).
