Mamie Becomes First Swiss Woman Under 1:07 In 100 Breaststroke


Competing on day 1 of the 2020 Sette Colli Trophy, visiting Swiss swimmer Lisa Mamie made things happen in the women’s 100m breaststroke event.

Firing off a winning time of 1:06.06, the 21-year-old lowered her own previous 100m breast NR of 1:07.11 she put on the books at last year’s FINA World Aquatic Championships in Gwangju, Korea.

Tonight’s performance saw Mamie open in 31.53 and bring it home in 35.07 to stand atop the podium with the gold ahead of runner-up Arianna Castiglioni and bronze medalist Martina Carraro, both of the home nation of Italy.

Comparing Mamie’s splits here with her World Championships outing, the Swiss athlete was simply faster on both fronts, keeping the proportion of speed essentially the same between the 2 races.

New Record – 1:06.60 (31.53/35.07)

Old Record – 1:07.11 (31.75/35.36)

Mamie owns the 50m breast (31.44) and 200m breast (2:24.42) Swiss national records as well.

As originally reported:


Sette Colli Record – Yuliya Efimova (RUS), 1:04.98 2018
Italian Record – Martina Carraro, 1:06.36 2019

The women’s 100m breast saw a thrilling feat by Swiss swimmer Lisa Mamie, with the 21-year-old establishing a new national record en route to gold.

Touching in 1:06.60, Mamie not only got under the 1:07 threshold for the first time in her career, but she managed to beat a packed home field, which included national record holder Martina Carraro.

Mamie’s previous lifetime best sat at the 1:07.10 she produced at last year’s World Championships in Gwangju. This year in Belgium, she collected a time of 1:08.01, pre-coronavirus pandemic in Belgium.

Finishing just .26 out of gold tonight was Arianna Castiglioniclocking her 3rd fastest outing all-time in 1:06.86, while the aforementioned Carraro settled for bronze in 1:07.08.
