Follow along with day 2 prelims at the 2017 FINA World Swimming Championships in Budapest.
Sweden’s Sarah Sjostrom already brought the house down yesterday in Monaco with a wicked-fast 56.20 100 fly, but she also fired off incredible 50m freestyle, 50m butterfly and 100m freestyle marks today.
When asked about Lilly King’s comments in the lead up to a heated 100 breast final, Efimova responded, “Then what would she say about Michael Phelps?”
Finally Michael Phelps is up in the men’s 100m butterfly. This event is arguably the toughest on his schedule for him. He wasn’t remarkably fast at the US Olympic Trials but has shown throughout this meet that he’s much better than he was just a few weeks ago.
Katinka Hosszu will look to build on her four medal performance from yesterday as she has three more A finals tonight.
