For instance, the women’s 100m fly saw yesterday’s two-time gold medalist Zhang Yufei post a speedy mark of 56.40 to take the competition title. That beat out the rest of the field by over two seconds, with the next-closest racer represented by Yu Yiting and her runner-up effort of 58.81.

Zhang already owns the fastest time in the world in this women’s 1fly event, having posted a mark of 55.62 last September at the Chinese National Swimming Championships.
