Another record breaking swim of the night came from Konrad Czerniak, who won the 50m butterfly in a best time of 22.64, defeating his previous record of 22.77, done in 2011. Paweł Korzeniowski was 2nd in 23.23 and 3rd was 18-year old Paweł Sendyk who clocked in in 23.37, a time that was good for a new Polish National Junior Record.
