Sophie Hansson of North Carolina State University blasted a 56.87 100 breaststroke from a flying start, as the third leg of the Wolfpack’s 400 medley relay in Greensboro on Thursday evening. She cracked the all-time top-10 list, the only person not named Lilly King to do so.
From the USA Swimming database:
|6||56.53||Lilly King||USA||2/15/2017||West Lafayette|
Hansson had been 11th on the all-time list thanks to her 57.01 in the final at 2021 NCAA Division I Championships. NC State won that race with an NCAA, Meet, US Open, and Pool Record of 3:24.59. The only record they did not break was the American Record because Hansson represents Sweden internationally.
In the NC State Invite final, the Wolfpack fielded three-quarters of their NCAA quartet. Katharine Berkoff led off in 50.96, Hansson followed with 56.87, Kylee Alons went 49.99 on the fly, and newcomer Abbey Webb anchored in 48.62.
Hansson’s split of 56.87 was .14 faster than her 57.01 from last year’s NCAA final, in which she was the fastest breaststroke leg in the meet.
