Siobhan Haughey Resets Asian Record, Becomes #3 All-Time with 50.94 100 SCM FR

2020 INTERNATIONAL SWIMMING LEAGUE – FINAL

Siobhan Haughey has been incredibly fast and very consistent throughout season 2 of the ISL, and leading off the 400 free relay today for Energy Standard, she swam a lifetime best 50.94.

That time is her first performance under 51 seconds, as she shot out to a 24.40 first 50 to get a very early lead on the field, following that with a 26.54 second 50. Her time today breaks her own Asian and Hong Kong record of 51.12, which was done last week at the ISL Semifinal #1, where she won the individual 100 free.

Haughey was 24.43 / 26.69 in that individual win, so she made a stronger push on the second 50 tonight in her new record swim.

50.94 makes Haughey the #3 performer in history, behind only W0rld Record-holder Cate Campbell of Australia (50.25) and Sarah Sjöström of Sweden (50.58). It’s also the #6 performance in history, and she’s just the fourth woman ever under 51, joining Campbell, Sjöström and Dutchwoman Ranomi Kromowidjojo.
