There is something in the Uster water, as the 3rd Swiss National Record bit the dust on night 1 of the 2019 Swiss Long Course Championships. Representing the nation’s qualifying meet for this summer’s World Championships, the athletes are throwing down some high-octane level performances, including in the women’s 200m breaststroke.
Entering this 4-day meet, the fastest female Swiss swimmer ever in the 200m breast was represented by Patrizia Humplik. Humplik’s National Record of 2:26.89 came way back during the supersuited era of 2009. This morning, however, Lisa Mamié managed to slice .33 off that mark to register a new National Record time of 2:26.56.
However, Mamié wasn’t done, as the Limmat Zuerich swimmer had designs on taking her new mark even lower. Splitting 1:10.56/1:15.18, Mamié dipped under the 2:26 threshold for the first time, stopping the clock at a monster 2:25.74 in the final. That outing not only gave her the gold tonight, but it also essentially guarantees Mamié a spot on the Swiss World Championships roster, clearing the FINA A standard of 2:25.91.
Additionally, Mamié enters the world rankings, tying Spain’s Marina Garcia in the 11th slot.
