American sprint star Simone Manuel earned another piece of hardware on the final night of competition at the 2017 FINA World Championships. Manuel, who won the 100 free earlier in the meet, became the first American woman to break the 24-second barrier when she touched in 23.97 to take bronze tonight. Winning the race was World Record holder Sarah Sjostrom (23.69) ahead of the Netherlands’ Ranomi Kromowidjojo (23.85), who put up a personal best for the silver.
With her performance tonight, Manuel set a new American Record and Continental Record. She erased the former mark of 24.07, which was set by sprint legend Dara Torres back in 2009.
