Three days after he took down the South American and Brazilian record in the 400 free at the 2018 Brazil Trophy, Minas’ Fernando Scheffer has done it again — this time in the 200.
Scheffer, 20, split 25.03/26.51/26.83/27.71 – en route to his winning time of 1:46.08. He broke fellow Brazilian Joao de Lucca‘s previous record of 1:46.42, set at the 2015 Pan American Games. de Lucca took third Friday night in 1:47.98.
Scheffer was responsible for Minas’ 8oo free relay win two nights ago, where out of the third leg, he brought the team back from behind splitting 1:44.84 — a hint at what he would do tonight.
Between Scheffer and de Lucca was Pinheiros’ Breno Correia, who took second in 1:47.94.
While winners are usually awarded 35 points towards their team’s overall score, because he broke the national record, Scheffer was awarded a whopping 85 points for the win.
