Hungary’s On-Fire Dominik Kozma Leads National Record Charge In Berlin


Day 2 in Berlin saw two women’s world records bite the dust, courtesy of Dutch swimmer Ranomi Kromowidjojo and Hungarian athlete Katinka Hosszu. ‘Kromo’ notched a new WR in the women’s short course meters 50 freestyle with a time of 22.93 to become the first woman ever to clock a sub-23 second time, while Hosszu continued her IM assault with a new 100m IM mark of 56.51.

Below is a round-up of those that were surpassed just today, with the 3rd stop within this first World Cup cluster yet to come in Eindhoven on August 11th and 12th.
