The first event of the day was the 100 butterfly. Anna Dowgiert was the only swimmer on the women’s side to break a minute with her winning time of 59.89. The men’s race was much stronger, however. Konrad Czerniak, the current world leader in the event a 51.37, cemented his name to the top of the World Rankings with the second fastest time in the world this year as well. He won today’s 100 butterfly with a time of 51.40.

Czerniak was pushed the entire way by Pawel Korzeniowksi, who finished second with a time of 51.71. Korzeniowksi’s time will make the world rankings as the seventh fastest performer this year.

Konrad Czerniak could bother a little Chad le Clos at worlds. But only a little. Like Tom Shields.
The veteran Korzeniowski equals his PB in 51.71.

Maybe yes , maybe no . Who knows who will be on top of his game in the final . Well be exciting to the least in my vieuw .

Czerniak has been performing consistently well and waiting in the wings for a while now. I wouldn’t be surprised if he makes a move this summer towards the top of the podium.

He has been performing consistently well the past few months. But that also tells me that a good chunk of the time he has been resting. All the while Le Clos has been in heavy training and probably hasn’t shaved in at least 6 months.

Markster

My mistake. He probably shaved for Short course worlds, but you get my point

Why can this not be found under European news? Which continent does Poland belong to?
