Italy and Canada are in a fierce battle for 3rd at the moment with 2 golds apiece, but Italy has an overall 2 medal advantage over the North American country headed into Friday.
Croatia is the new nation added to the medal table after today’s action, with Franko Grgic producing a new National Record in the men’s 800m free en route to gold. The multi-European Youth Olympic Games gold medalist clocked a winning time tonight of 7:45.92 to beat the field and get his country on the board with gold.
Canada’s Jade Hannah doubled up on her 100m backstroke gold with a 200m back win tonight to help her nation remain in the top 5.
Russia’s Andrei Minakov topped the men’s 100m fly podium in a time of 51.25, while a pair of Americans finished 1-2 in the women’s 100m free. Gretchen Walsh got it done in a new personal best of 53.74, while Torri Huske hit the wall in 54.54.
To end the night, the American foursome of Luca Urlando, Adam Chaney, Amy Tang, and Walsh combined to produce a new World Junior Record in the mixed 4x100m free relay. Their time of 3:25.92 made history as the fastest ever for juniors and gave America another gold here in Budapest.
