Junior World Records Fall On First Two Days of Chinese Fall Nationals

The Chinese are taking advantage of an early opportunity to put themselves on top of the 2015-2016 World Rankings. The first two days of the Chinese Fall National Championships have been very fast, with two Junior World Records and a national record.

On the first day of competition in Huangshan, Wang Lizhuo lowered Anton Chupkov‘s junior world record in the 100 breaststroke 0f 1:00.12 with a time of 59.79. His time also lowered the Chinese national record and is now the first Chinese swimmer in history to break 1 minute in the 100 breaststroke.

Li Zhuhao doubled up on the second day of the meet, winning the 50 butterfly and 200 butterfly. His second swim, the 200 butterfly, was also a junior World Record. He lowered Andrew Seliskar‘s record from the 2014 Junior Pan Pacific Championships of 1:55.92 with his time of 1:55.52.

Sun Yang also doubled up through the first two days, winning the 1500 freestyle and the 200 freestyle. His 1500 was okay, but his 200 freestyle was strong with a time of 1:45.79.

Another competitor in the Chupkov v Andrew v Whitley race. Except Wang is now solidly the best of the 4 in the 100 right now, and it seems as though Andrew may never hold the JWR in the event.

this competition gets way too less attention

Zhen

The Fall meet usually gets little attention as most big names don’t take it very seriously. But every year a couple swimmers try to make a statement here.

I don’t know how old Mr. Wang is, but Mr. Andrew has over a year to work on his 100 breast time! Michael is only 16 (although I think he turns 17 soon), and as I understand it, he has until next Dec. 31st to try to beat Wang’s time.

Wang is listed as 1998-04-11
