Majchrzak, Wilk Break National Records On Day 2 Of Polish Nats

Kacper Majchrzak cracked the Polish record with a 1:46.46 in the 200 freestyle and Katazyna Wilk broke the women’s 100 free with a 54.38, highlighting day 2 of Poland’s national championships.

Majchrzak snuck under the old record by just over a tenth; that mark stood at 1:46.59 from Pawel Korzeniowski in 2009. Korzeniowski was second to Majchrzak on Saturday, going 1:48.79.

That time for Majchrzak was also a FINA “A” cut.

Wilk’s swim came during the leadoff leg of the 4×100 free relay. Wilk blasted her 54.38 to take more than half a second off her own national record of 54.96 set in 2010.

Other than those two swims, the rest of day 2 was relatively quiet for Poland’s stars, most of whom are coming off the European Championships earlier this month.

National record-holder Alicia Tchorz won the women’s 100 back, though she finished seven tenths off her national mark in 1:01.30. Tchorz also capped off the night with a solid 56.37 anchor leg on the winning 4×100 free relay.

Konrad Czerniak was the top swimmer of the men’s relay, splitting 48.23 to help his AZS AWF Katowice squad break the Polish record in 3:19.77.

Other event winners from day 2:

  • Diana Sokolowska took the women’s 200 free in 2:01.46.
  • Dominika Sztandera was 31.45 to win the women’s 50 breast.
  • The men’s race went to Maciej Holub in 27.88, a narrow victory over Marcin Stolarski (27.99).
  • Paula Zukowska went 4:47.88 to win the women’s 400 IM.
  • In the corresponding men’s event, Dawid Szwedzki was 4:19.76 to touch out Jan Switkowski (4:19.87).
