Kamminga Slices .01 Off Dutch Record – 58.42 To Remain 4th Fastest Man Ever

DUTCH NATIONAL TEAM TIME TRIAL

  • Friday, April 30th
  • Eindhoven, Netherlands
  • LCM (50m)
  • Results

Dutch national teamers were back at it, racing at another exclusive time trial in their native Netherlands. Breaststroking ace Arno Kamminga took full advantage of the opportunity to fine-tune his skills 84 days out from this summer’s Olympic Games, with the 25-year-old firing off a new national record in the 100m breaststroke.

Kamminga stopped the clock today in Eindhoven in a wicked-quick 58.42. Racing himself, that was enough to slice .01 off of his own previous Dutch national standard in the 100m breast event, which stood at 58.43 from March of 2020. 

Today, Kamminga opened in 27.31 and closed in 31.12 to make the new mark. Compare that to his 2020 swim where the Dutchman opened in 27.62 and brought it home in 30.81 for a notable difference in strategy.

In terms of all-time performers, Kamminga’s result here keeps the man ranked 4th around the world, positioned only behind Olympic champion and world record-holder Adam Peaty, Belarus’ Ilya Shymanovich and now Italy’s newly-minted national record holder Nicolo Martinenghi.

Men’s 100 Breaststroke All-Time Performers

  1. Adam Peaty (GBR), 56.88 2019
  2. Ilya Shymanovich (BLR), 58.29 2019
  3. Nicolo Martinenghi (ITA), 58.37 2021
  4. Arno Kamminga (NED), 58.42 2021
  5. James Wilby (GBR), 58.46 2019

Looking at the rankings for just this season, Kamminga’s record-setting outing here keeps him ranked as the 3rd fastest performer worldwide.
