Iron swimmer Emre Sakci set a new Turkish Record in the men’s SCM 50 breaststroke during the second match of the 2020 ISL season, clocking a time of 25.74.
Sakci lowered his previous mark of 25.82 set at the 2019 European SC Championships in December (where he won silver behind former Iron swimmer Vladimir Morozov).
In the process of breaking the record, the 22-year-old Sakci defeated a loaded field in the event, including Adam Peaty (26.06), Fabio Scozzoli (26.10), Nicolo Martinenghi (26.12) and Kirill Prigoda (26.49).
Ilya Shymanovich, who competes for Energy Standard, became the sixth-fastest performer of all-time during the league’s first match on Friday (25.64).
