Watch the Last 20 Meters of Daiya Seto’s Monster 200 Fly/200 IM Double


Japanese swimmer Daiya Seto had arguably the best day of swimming in his career to date on Friday in Beijing, swimming a new Asian Record in the 200 fly and a new lifetime best in the 200 IM. He now ranks as the 3rd-best swimmer in history in the 200 fly and tied for the 7th-best swimmer in the history of the 200 IM.

And now, thanks to the generosity of FINA, you can watch the last 20 meters of each of those races. FINA has made a few select race videos from Beijing available via their YouTube channel, and those are below as well.
