On day 3 of the 2015 Sunshine Conference Championships (set to conclude on Sunday), Russian freshman Anton Lobanov of the Nova Southeastern University Sharks has broken the NCAA Division II Record in the 100 yard breaststroke
Lobanov swam a 52.00 to win the event, as part of an overall 2nd-place effort so far from his team.
That time broke the mark of 52.43 done in 2009 by Division II legend Alex Hetland of the University of Tampa. It’s also the fifth-fastest 100 breaststroke done at any level of the NCAA so far this season, behind only Division I swimmers Nic Fink, Sam Tierney, Peter John Stevens, and Michael Duderstadt.
The 22-year old Lobanov competed for his native Russia at the 2012 World Short Course Championships and at the 2014 European Long Course Championships.
