Canadian Kylie Masse earned her second silver medal of the 2020 Olympic Games with a 2:05.42 effort in the women’s 200 backstroke on the penultimate day of competition in Tokyo.
Masse’s performance is a new Canadian Record, lowering her previous mark of 2:05.94 set in 2019 at the Canadian World Trials. Masse also solidifies herself as the 5th-fastest performer all-time with the swim in Tokyo.
Australia’s Kaylee McKeown won her second gold medal of the Games with a 2:04.68. McKeown earlier won the gold medal with a new Olympic Record in the 100 backstroke in 57.47, missing her own World Record by just 0.02. Fellow Aussie Emily Seebohm claimed the bronze medal behind Masse in 2:06.17, meanwhile Masse’s teammate Taylor Ruck, the 2018 Commonwealth Champion in both the 100 and 200 backstroke, finished 6th in 2:08.24.
