Day 2 of the 2019 Chinese Summer Swimming Championships concluded yesterday in Guangzhou, with teenager Yin Jiahe taking the women’s 200m free.
Yin hit the wall in 2:01.02 to clear the field by .31. Jiahe’s birth year is listed as 2005, so the swimmer is merely 14 or 15 years of age with that gold medal-worthy time.
The women’s 200m breast saw Yu Yiting take the gold in 2:28.62, while Li Chao reaped the same result in the men’s 400m IM, clocking 4:21.52. For Yu, the teen already took 50m breast gold last night in a mark of 31.76.
Fu Yuanhui doubled up on her 50m back victory from night 1 with a solid swim of 59.57 in the 100m back to collect more hardware. She nailed a mark of 27.66 in that 50, with her sub-minute result tonight now frog-hopping Hungary’s Katinka Hosszu to become the 9th fastest in the world this season.
Entering the meet, Fu’s season-best was the 59.60 logged at the FINA Champions Series on her home turf in April.
- Li Guangyuan hit the wall first in the men’s 200m back in 1:58.67, doubling up on his 200m free victory from night 1.
- The men’s 1500m free saw Pan Zhanle (birth year 2004) registered a winning effort of 15:33.48, while Zhang Zhoujian took 50m free gold in 22.87.
- Zheng Yao and Zhang Sishi tied in the women’s 50m free sprint, each earning a result of 25.91 to share the podium.
- Shen Hao took 100m breast gold in 1:01.11 tonight.
