As if Australian stalwart Emily Seebohm hasn’t made enough of a mark on her nation’s swimming history, the 25-year-old Olympic medalist cruised to a new record in the women’s 200m IM on day 1 of the FINA World Cup Singapore.
Wrapping up 2 wins on day 2 in Singapore, Chad Le Clos earned a record-breaking 4th overall World Cup Series title.
Michael Andrew did his thing in Singapore, capturing silver in the men’s 100m IM in a new World Junior Record, while also contributing to Team USA’s WJR in the mixed medley relay.
It’s day 4 of the Summer Universiade (also known as the World University Games) in Taipei, and tonight’s finals session schedule is loaded with big events, including the 200 IM led by Japan’s Yui Ohashi.
Yui Ohashi of Japan will be hunting down gold in the 400 IM after taking the top qualifying time in the prelims.
Since the first World Championships took place in 1973, Korea has only had 6 swimmers reach the finals. Korean swimmer An Sehyeon made history when she became this first Korean woman to swim in multiple finals.
Many swim fans would argue that Ohashi is even better in the 400 IM than the 200 IM, and after her showing in the shorter IM event, she’s now emerged as a serious threat for gold in the 400 IM.
Michael Phelps will be competing in the heats of the men’s 200m butterfly shortly after where he’s not exactly the favorite. It looks to be a three man race right now between Phelps and his two rivals: Chad le Clos of South Africa and Laszlo Cseh of Hungary. Both have said their fair share of talk about Phelps making this one of the most anticipated races of the games.
