Felipe Lima Breaks SA Record, Becomes #2 Performer All-Time In 50 Breast

2019 MARE NOSTRUM – MONACO

Brazilian Felipe Lima produced the sixth-fastest swim in history Sunday at the Monaco stop of the Mare Nostrum Tour, clocking 26.33 to win the head-to-head shootout style final against Ilya Shymanovich.

Lima’s time of 26.33 broke the South American Record previously held by his countryman Joao Gomes (26.42) and moves him past Gomes for second on the all-time performer’s list behind only Adam Peaty of Great Britain. Lima’s previous best time was 26.48, which ranked him third all-time.

Both Gomes and Lima had swum their best times at the Maria Lenk Trophy in April.

Peaty currently owns the five-fastest swims ever, with Lima’s swim taking over sixth.

Wow. Peaty’s going to have to be on world record pace to win at worlds. Otherwise the Brazilians will beat him

Amazing! Feels great to see swimmers who aren’t Cody ‘dolphin-kick cheater’ Miller succeed in this great stroke.

Hmmmm

Triggered much 😂

I like how you call him out but not the two guys who beat him in that race who also both did the same thing

“Two swimmers next to him”… If you don’t have names and video proof than its not a thing. We have both for Cody Miller AND he consistently does it and has yet to stop.

Go and watch short course world’s from 2014 to see Lima and Homes kicking into every turn.

@hmmmm

If you think he’s referring to one specific race… LOL. You know he does it too

Ytho

Miller is not even that good of a 50 breastroker. Imo, that tiny kick at the end of each stroke would just slow you down ín combination with the high stroke rates the 50 is swam these days.

João do vácuo

Go XULIPA!!
