2019 W. NCAAs: Louise Hansson Swims Fastest 100 Fly in History

2019 WOMEN’S DIVISION I NCAA CHAMPIONSHIPS

USC junior Louise Hansson broke her own NCAA and US Open records Friday night at the 2019 Women’s Division I NCAA Championships.

Hansson, a native of Sweden, split 23.03/26.23 to win the event in 49.26. Her previous NCAA and US Open records were 49.34, set earlier this month at the 2019 Pac-12 Championships. Michigan’s Maggie MacNeil took second place in 49.66, and Cal’s Katie McLaughlin was third in 49.97. McLaughlin’s swim makes her the No. 5 performer in history – the fifth woman to break :50 (MacNeil was already the No. 3 performer with her 49.59).

Kelsi Dahlia, who was on hand to give Hansson her award, was the previous meet record holder at 49.43 (and still holds the American record). Hansson now owns three of the top 10 100 fly swims in history.
