WOMEN’S 200 BREAST – FINAL
Japan’s Reona Aoki, swimming out of lane five, jumped out to an early lead. She touched first at the 50m mark, and had nearly a body-length lead at the halfway point of the race. However, it was her teammate, the top-seeded Keiko Fukudome, who would take the gold medal, as she surged ahead over the final 50m of the race to beat Aoki by over a second, 2:24.92 to 2:26.17. Those times put both swimmers inside the top 25 in the world this year.
Czech swimmer Martina Moravcikov also used a strong last 50 to pick up the bronze medal (2:27.35). In doing so she picked off Andrea Cottrell (USA), who finished in fourth with a time of 2:28.08.
The final four spots went to Italy’s Francesca Fangio (2:28.18), American Molly Hannis(2:28.67), Suyeon Back of Korea (2:28.89) and British swimmer Olivia White (2:29.95).
