LA Current’s Ingrid Wilm lowered the Canadian Record in the women’s 100 backstroke for the third time this season, hitting the wall in 55.61 to slice 0.07 from her previous record.
Wilm first lowered the record in Match 4 and became the first Canadian woman in history under 56-seconds in the race. Wilm lowered the record again in Match 5 taking a further quarter-second from her mark. Wilm’s swim Sunday makes her the 9th-fastest performer all-time between Ukraine’s Daryna Zevina (55.54) and Australia’s Kaylee McKeown (55.68).
Kylie Masse held the Canadian Record in the event before Wilm, having set it at 56.02, set in the prelims at the 2016 FINA World Championships in Windsor. Though Masse has yet to catch up with Wilm she did narrow the gap significantly with a 55.83 posted on Friday in Match 7.
In addition to breaking her own national record, Wilm earned LA 15 points with her swim as she stole the points from three other competitors.
