In the re-swim, Dawson got the job done again, this time in 58.49. Though she loses her official PB of 58.18 and that Championship Record, she still owns the record and keeps her European gold medal.
Dawson was notably much more conservative on the first 50 in the re-swim, flipping in 28.47 compared to a blazing 27.99 in the first final. She closed faster, 30.02 to 30.19, in the re-swim.
Italian Margherita Panziera was the biggest benefactor of the re-swim, dropping over six tenths from the first heat to move up from fourth to the silver medal in 59.01, .09 off her Italian Record.
