Katinka Hosszu Breaks World Record in 100 IM For 3rd Time in a Week

For the 3rd time this week, Hungary’s Katinka Hosszu has broken the World Record in the women’s 100 IM, meaning that she’s cashed in a 3rd $10,000 check from this event alone at the 2013 FINA World Cup Series.

The latest swim came in Sunday morning prelims at the Berlin stop of the World Cup, where Hosszu swam a 57.45. The progression of the World Record this week is below:

Hinkelien Schreuder 57.74 (Nov. 15, 2009 – Berlin finals)
Katinka Hosszu 57.73 (Aug. 8, 2013 – Eindhoven prelims)
Katinka Hosszu 57.50 (Aug. 8, 2013 – Eindhoven finals)
Katinka Hosszu 57.45 (Aug. 11, 2013 – Berlin prelims)

This time, she continued to advance the World Record with her closing split, which for the first time dipped under 31 seconds. She was out in 26.47 and back in 30.98.

In all, Hosszu has swum 5 World Record breaking swims in the two days of the meet: thrice in this 100 IM, and twice in the 200 IM.

Let’s see what happens to 400IM record in the evening session. Some statistical genious could tell us if someone has ever holded all three world records simultaniously in all IM events in short course.


*genious = genius, and the question applies to women. Ryan Lochte is holding all of them right now!

Definitely not a statistical genious, I’m not Nate Silver, but I have a great memory. And I can tell you that Ryan Lochte holds, at this time, the 3 IM world records in short course. For the women, I have made a few researches and it has never happened.

You have replied you while I replied you. Yes it’s genius. 🙂


Exactly !!! good memory


Jani Sieven held all three sc IM WR in the 90’s too


Great job Hosszu!

bobo gigi

The links I know are not appreciated by Braden Keith. So I don’t give them.


Braden is still sleeping and I won’t tell you shared them
