Hong Kong’s Siobahn Haughey earned her second individual medal of the meet, clocking a 50.98 to break the course record of 51.14. Haughey has already set the world record in the 200 free with her swim on the first day.
Familiar names rounded out the rest of the podium. Sweden’s Sarah Sjostrom took silver thanks the second-fastest back half of the race (26.48), behind only Haughey, as the sprint star touched in 51.31. American Abbey Weitzeil was in 2nd at the halfway point, only 0.05s behind Haughey, and she hung on to just touch out Poland’s Katarzyna Wasick for bronze, 51.64 to 51.71.
