Finlay Knox Lowers Canadian Record in the 100 IM for 2nd Time in 2 Weeks

2021 INTERNATIONAL SWIMMING LEAGUE – SEASON 3, MATCH 7

Finlay Knox lowered his own one-week-old Canadian Record in the 100 IM on Sunday in Naples, posting a 51.77 to shave 0.05 from his previous mark. Knox won the race for the Toronto Titans and stole the points from two other swimmers for a 12-point haul. Knox led the entire race though Iron’s Marco Orsi kept it close the entire way.

Knox’s swim in Match 7 featured a significantly faster opening 50 than his last mark. On Sunday, Knox turned at 50 meters in 23.32, a full 0.75 faster than his split from a week earlier. Though his second 50 was also significantly slower than his split in Match 5, he had enough opening speed to eclipse his previous lifetime best.

I’m excited for Knox over the next few Olympic cycles! He’s on a good improvement course and he’s still quite young. Canada is due for another great male IM’er
