New York Breaker Svetlana Chimrova Clocks 200 Fly National Record


While competing on day 2 of the International Swimming League’s match #11, New York Breaker Svetlana Chimrova busted out a new Russian national record en route to topping the women’s 200m fly event.

Stopping the clock in a mark of 2:03.76, 25-year-old Chimrova beat the field by just over a second, with Iron’s Alys Thomas touching in 2:04.77 and Tokyo Frog Kings’ Yui Ohashi hitting 2:06.28.

Chimrova opened in 59.82 and brought it home in 1:03.94 to overtake her own lifetime best and Russian national standard of 2:04.36. The Breaker set that mark way back in 2017 at that year’s Russian Championships.

This match, the Breakers have been doing some damage in the women’s fly events, with Chimrova placing 2nd in the women’s 100m distance yesterday followed by her teammate Alicja Tchorz who placed 3rd in a new Polish national record.

Every point in this match matters, this is the last day of competition in the first block of ISL’s 2021 season, where the league’s bottom four teams are competing for two spots in the ISL Playoffs in Eindhoven in November. Entering today’s action, the New York Breakers are 4th out of the 4 teams.

Scores at the conclusion of Day 1:

  1. DC Trident – 277
  2. Iron – 226.5
  3. Tokyo Frog Kings – 214.5
  4. New York Breakers – 193
