After unleashing the fastest 100 breast relay split in history during Thursday’s 400 medley relay (56.02), and putting up the fastest individual 100 breast in tonight’s finals, Indiana’s Lilly King threw down a 25.38 50 breast split in the 200 medley relay.
She bested her previous record of 25.55 from the 2017 Big Ten Championships by .17, and was the fastest breaststroker in the field by 1.12 seconds.
Her team of Ally Rockett, Christie Jensen, and Grace Haskett took third in 1:33.89, which was under the previous American record pace of 1:34.10. However, Stanford’s team of Ally Howe, Kim Williams, Janet Hu, and Simone Manuel won the race and set the American record in 1:33.11. Indiana had about a body length’s lead after King’s swim, despite entering her leg tied with Stanford.
King will swim the 200 breast Saturday.
