Dolfin Swim of the Week: Zhang Yufei Showing Remarkable 100 Fly Consistency

Disclaimer: Dolfin Swim of the Week is not meant to be a conclusive selection of the best overall swim of the week, but rather one Featured Swim to be explored in deeper detail. The  Dolfin Swim is an opportunity to take a closer look at the context of one of the many fast swims this week, perhaps a swim that slipped through the cracks as others grabbed the headlines, or a race we didn’t get to examine as closely in the flood of weekly meets.

China’s Zhang Yufei registered at least her fourth sub-58 swim in the 100 fly in the past seven weeks.

Zhang went 57.82 to win China’s national championship in the event. That comes after Zhang was 58.02 and 57.93 at the World Championships in July, followed by a 57.41 at the Jinan World Cup, and 57.94 at the Singapore World Cup a week later.

All of those swims are within seven tenths of Zhang’s lifetime-best: a 57.29 from World Championships back in 2017. She was 57.40 at year later at the Asian Games, and is proving rock-solid consistent in the 57-mid range.
