Russia’s Anna Krivshina broke her second world record of the meet to cap the final night of the German International Championships (also known as IDM, or Internationale Deutsche Meisterschaft).

Krivshina went 1:06.85 to break the S13 world record in the 100 back. That adds to her 50 back world record, which she broke twice on day 2.

In the men’s 50 fly, a pair of Europeans doubled up, breaking world records in prelims and finals.

France’s Charles Rozoy was 27.87 in prelims to break the S8 world record and put up the highest point value in the field. Just behind him was Russia’s Roman Makarov, who went 26.27 to break the world record in S12.

In the final, Rozoy lowered his record to 27.67, while Makarov dropped his to 26.15.

Once again, a slew of records highlighted the day’s morning session. IN prelims of the men’s 100 back, Italy’s Vincenzo Boni went 1:38.43 to break the S3 world record. Boni does not appear on the results of that night’s final in the event.

The morning also featured two timed finals – the men’s and women’s 200 breast. In the men’s race, two men broke world records. Torben Schmidtke of Germany went 2:59.93 to break the SB6 world record, while in SB13, Russia’s Maksim Nikiforov went 2:28.83 for the world record.

The only other record came in the evening session. Australia’s Emly Jane Beecroft went 31.63 to break the S9 world record in the 50 fly.
