The title went to Hong Kong’s Siobhan Haughey in 54.47, which broke the Meet Record set by American Lia Neal in 2011 at 54.90. That also re-broke the Hong Kong National Age Group Record for 15-17′s that she set in prelims, and came within a tenth of former NCAA standout Hannah Wilson’s overall National Record.
