- Match #9 Day 2 Recap
Turkish breaststroker Emre Sakci, who has been one of the breakout revelations of Season 2 of the International Swimming League, has broken the Turkish and European Records in the men’s 100 short course meter breaststroke.
Swimming on Day #2 of his team’s regular season finale in Match #9, Sakci posted a 55.74.
That dips under the old record, set last week in the ISL by Belarusian swimmer Ilya Shymanovich at 55.85. Shymanovich himself, who finished 2nd in Tuesday morning’s race, was under his old record in 55.83, meaning that he also broke his own National Record.

Old Turkish Record
The European Record coming into the season was Shymanovich’s 55.89 from the 2019 European Short Course Championships.
When the 2019 ISL season, which Sakci didn’t participate in, began, his best time was a 57.31 and Shymanovich’s was 56.10. The younger Sakci, though, has caught up in a hurry.
The 22-year old Sakci also holds the European Record in the 50 breaststroke after swimming a 25.29 last week in Match #7.
Sakci and Shymanovich swam the #2 and #3 performances in history on Tuesday in that 100 breaststroke. They are now just hundredths behind the World Record set by Cameron van der Burgh at 55.61.
