Tes Schouten Adds 100 Breaststroke Dutch Record To Rotterdam Resumé

2022 ROTTERDAM QUALIFICATION MEET

The 2022 Rotterdam Qualification Meet wrapped up today but not before Tes Schouten fired off another Dutch national record.

After already clocking a new national mark in the women’s 200m breast earlier in the meet in a time of 2:23.67, Schouten logged a new personal best of 1:06.09 to take the gold.

21-year-old Schouten first set the stage in the morning heats with an AM time of 1:06.58. That not only landed lane 4 by nearly 3 seconds, but it also overwrote the previous Dutch standard of 1:06.92 from this same meet 2 years ago.

Come tonight’s final, Schouten engaged a new gear to slice even more time off of that newly-minted PB. Opening in 31.44 and closing in 34.65, Schouten ultimately stopped the clock in a big-time Dutch record of 1:06.09 to come close to the 1:06 barrier.

Schouten now ranks as the #1 swimmer in the world in this women’s long course 100m breaststroke, taking the crown from Japan’s Reona Aoki.
