Though the session went by without a new World Record, night two of finals in Gwangju was thrilling. First, Adam Peaty and James Wilby went 1-2 for Great Britain in the men’s 100 breaststroke, clocking times of 57.14 and 58.46, respectively. Sweden’s Sarah Sjostrom was dethroned by young Canadian Maggie MacNeil, who became the 2nd-fastest performer in history behind only Sjostrom tonight with her 55.83 to win gold. Caeleb Dressel became the first American man to ever win gold in the men’s 50 fly, finishing a mere .08 shy of the World Record. Finally, Katinka Hosszu won the women’s 200 IM for the fourth-consecutive long course World Championships, a feat never before accomplished by a female swimmer.
Monday evening also saw the semifinals of the women’s 100 backstroke, men’s 100 backstroke, women’s 100 breaststroke, and men’s 200 freestyle. These videos, however, are not yet available.
