Siobhan Haughey of Hong Kong lopped another three-tenths of a second off of her own Asian Record during the semifinals of the women’s 100 free today. Haughey, who broke Ikee Rikako’s mark of 52.78 with a 52.70 in prelims, stormed to a 52.40 in semis.
With that time, Haughey won the first semi-final, and finished 2nd overall heading into finals, behind only Emma McKeon of Australia, who swam a 52.32 to win the second heat. Here’s a quick look at Haughey’s splits in prelims and semis.
Haughey’s improvement today came on the front half; she went out 0.33s faster in the semi-final than she did in prelims, then came home just 0.03s slower than in prelims, resulting in an overall improvement of 0.30s.
Haughey, who swam for the University of Michigan collegiately, will be competing for her second freestyle medal of the meet. Yesterday, she earned silver in the women’s 200 free, earning the country of Hong Kong its first-ever Olympic swimming medal.
