Georgia Davies took home the women’s 50 back title in a time of 27.23, just .02 off of her European Record set in the prelims. Anastasiia Fesikova, who was 27.23 in the prelims, was a close 2nd in 27.31, and Finland’s Mimosa Jallow claims bronze in 27.70. Jallow also had her fastest swim of the three rounds in the prelims, breaking her Finnish Record in 27.42.
Interestingly enough, all eight finalists had been faster in either the prelims or semis (or both) than they were in the final. All eight of them were sub-28 in the semis, but Poland’s Alicja Tchorz was the only other one under tonight, taking 4th in 27.74 after going a National Record of 27.72 last night.
