Race Video Highlights: World Records & More At Budapest World Cup

2018 FINA WORLD CUP – BUDAPEST

The 4th stop of the 2018 FINA World Cup in Budapest, Hungary – the same pool that hosted the 2017 FINA World Championships – featured no shortage of blistering performances.

Over the course of 3 days, 3 World Records were broken by Jamaica’s Alia Atkinson in the 50 breast with a 28.56, Brazil’s Nicholas Santos in the 50 fly with a 21.75, and China’s Jianjiahe Wang in the 400 free with a 3:53.97.

There were also a pair of World Cup Records (Kelsi Dahlia in the 100 fly and Vlad Morozov in the 50 free), a World Junior Record (Wang in the 800 free – missed WR by 0.1), and a couple of tied American Records (Blake Pieroni in the 100 free and Kathleen Baker in the 100 IM).
