Duncan Scott of London Roar won the men’s 100 IM on Day 2 of the sixth match with 51.92, thus becoming the first British man in history to swim the event in less than 52 seconds.
Scott took down a nearly ten-year-old record that was set by James Goddard when he clocked a 52.05 at the Berlin World Cup in October 2011. Goddard placed second in that race to Michael Phelps (51.65) and beat Kenneth To (52.46) and Sergei Fesikov (52.59). Fesikov was the World Cup record-holder at the time with 50.95.
In Naples, Scott won his first ISL 100 IM, beating Thomas Ceccon of Aqua Centurions (52.12) and Vladimir Morozov of Tokyo Frog Kings (52.43), both of whom had a career victory under their belts coming into the race. Scott had a massive back half, coming from fifth at the halfway mark to first at the final wall. Ceccon and Morozov ran in second and third throughout the race.
Scott now owns individual British Swimming records in the:
- LCM 100 free – 47.87
- LCM 200 IM – 1:55.28
- SCM 200 free – 1:40.25
- SCM 100 IM – 51.92
- 200 IM – 1:51.66
- 400 IM – 3:59.81
Scott became the first British athlete to earn four medals at a single Olympic Games when he took home a silver in the 200 free, a silver in the 200 IM, a gold in the men’s 800 free relay, and a silver in the men’s 400 medley relay in Tokyo.
