While competing on day 2 of the first stop of the 2021 FINA World Cup, Dutch speedster Jesse Puts logged a new national record in the men’s 100m freestyle event.
Puts opened in 22.06 and brought it home in 24.46 to become the fastest Dutchman once again, taking his record back over from teammate Thom De Boer.
De Boer of ISL Team Iron just set the Dutch standard at 46.76 this past July, comprised of splits of 21.97/24.79.
As for Puts, his fastest time entering this Berlin meet rested at the 46.94 he put up just a couple of weeks ago during an ISL match in Naples while representing the Cali Condors. Prior to that performance, Puts had never before been under 47, owning a career-quickest result of 47.14 from just hit past July.
Puts’ trajectory in this 100m free event bodes well for the Cali Condors’ post-season.
