Day 2 of the 2019 German Open in Essen was quiet yet again, with no new swimmers added to the already-announced German roster for this summer’s World Championships.

Lisa Höpink (1998, SG Essen) won the women’s 100m butterfly in 59.38, while Amelie Zachenhuber (2004, SC Prinz Eugen Munich) took second place in 1:01.96. The minimum standard time for the European Junior Championships in Kazan is 1:01.15.

Luca Nik Armbruster (2001, SG Dortmund) is already qualified for the European Junior Championships with his season best of 53.71 in the men’s 100m butterfly, but he was within range again tonight with his gold medal mark of 54.10.

Runner-up in the event was Damian Wierling (1996, SG Essen) who logged 54.98. Wierling already made the World Championships squad in the 4x100m free relay.

Zellmann has already secured his World Championships berth in this event with the 1:46.89 he notched a few weeks ago.
