The 2022 Swedish National Championships wrapped up in Linköping, with Louise Hansson snatching up a European Championships-worthy time in the women’s 100m fly.

Producing a winning effort of 56.98, Hansson opened in 26.74 and closed in 30.24 to beat the field tonight by nearly 3 seconds. Her time here came within half a second of the 56.48 she produced in Budapest to place 4th in the World Championships final.

Additional winners tonight included Hanna Eriksson topping the women’s 200m free in 2:02.53 while Oskar Hoff nabbed the men’s 100m fly gold in 53.24.

The men’s 400m IM saw William Lulek log an effort of 4:24.73 for the win while the women’s edition saw Tea Winblad get to the wall first in 4:59.44 for the victory.
