London Roar swimmer Luke Greenbank continues his run of resetting the British Record in the men’s 200 backstroke inside the ISL bubble in Budapest, now having cracked the 1:49-barrier in 1:48.65
Greenbank, 23, undercuts his previous record of 1:49.31 set in the semi-finals, and has now brought the record almost a full second and a half under where it stood coming into the season.
The two-time LC World Championship medalist entered 2020 holding the British Record in 1:50.09, set at the 2019 SC Euros in December, and then took it down to 1:49.97 in Match 5 before his 1:49.31 in semi-final 1.
Greenbank made the biggest inroads on his old record on the opening 50, but was faster on all four 50s to blow by the record by over six-tenths.
|Greenbank, Semi-Final 1||Greenbank, Final|
|27.92 (53.93)||27.87 (53.56)|
|28.16 (1:22.09)||27.91 (1:21.47)|
|27.22 (1:49.31)||27.18 (1:48.65)|
In the all-time rankings, the Brit elevates himself into 13th, previously sitting in a tie for 21st.
The event was won by Energy Standard’s Evgeny Rylov, a Russian native, who narrowly missed the European Record of 1:46.11 in a time of 1:46.37.
