Lehnertz, who broke the national 100 fly mark on Saturday, was 2:14.21 in the 200 on Sunday night to take down the old record of 2:15.23. That mark had stood since 2008.

A trio of men doubled up on wins Sunday night.

Yeziel Morales, fresh off a Puerto Rican national record in the 200 back a day earlier, swept the 50 and 100 backstrokes. He was 26.51 in the 50 (just four tenths off the national record) and 56.85 in the 100 (about a second off the record).

Cuba’s Alex Hernandez doubled up as well. He topped Puerto Rican national record-holder Erik Risolvato to win the 50 fly 24.07 to 24.40, and also won the 100 fly in 53.98.

The other double winner was Edgar Aguilar, who won the 400 IM in 4:40.65 and the 200 breast with a 2:23.66.

Mexico’s Daniel Ramirez had a big swim in prelims of the 100 free, going 49.80 to become the first Mexican swimmer under 50 seconds. He would win the final in 50.02, competing under the FINA banner.

A few other notable event winners:

  • Puerto Rico’s national record-holder Vanessa Garcia won the 50 freestyle in 25.66, six tenths off her best time.
  • Venezuela’s Antoine Khazne followed up his 400 free win on Saturday with a 1:51.39 win in the 200 free on Sunday.
  • A two-event winner on Saturday, Fanny Teijonsalo of Finland won the 200 IM on the final night, going 2:22.85.
  • Another double winner from Saturday picked up a third win on Sunday: Karen Vilorio of Honduras was 2:18.19 to win the 200 back, completing a sweep of the backstroke races.
