Israeli swimmer Anastasia Gorbenko was among the standout swimmers during the first session of the International Swimming League’s season opener in Budapest, putting together several impressive swims that included a record-setting effort in the women’s 200 individual medley.
Gorbenko, 17, recorded a time of 2:06.46, lowering both her Israeli National and European Junior Records of 2:07.64 set at last year’s ISL meet in Budapest. However, it is worth noting that the official European Junior Record books have yet to recognize that 2:07.64 swim, still noting the benchmark time of 2:07.65 as the current record.

|Back||32.73 (1:01.01)||32.44 (1:00.49)|

|Free||29.76 (2:07.64)||29.61 (2:06.46)|
In addition to her record-setting medley swim, Gorbenko also proved to be an invaluable asset on the Current relays. She split 52.18 on the 400 free relay, the third-fastest out of the six swimmers on her club who had a relay takeover, and followed up with the field’s #3 breaststroke split in the 400 medley relay (1:04.90). Gorbenko’s flat start best times in those events stand at 52.87 and 1:07.44, respectively.
