Day two of the 2023 World Junior Championships concluded today from Israel with the United States maintaining its lead in the overall medal table.
The stars n’ stripes have already amassed 11 pieces of hardware, including 4 more golds earned this evening.
Joshua Chen topped the podium in the boys’ 100m breaststroke, producing a time of 1:00.70 for a new lifetime best.
The following boys’ event also saw America reap gold, as Maximus Williamson got to the wall first in the 200m IM. Williamson notched a winning result of 1:57.29 to establish a new Championships Record.
Kayla Han kept things going by snagging the girls’ 800m freestyle top spot. Just 15 years of age, Han clocked a mark of 8:29.66 to beat tonight’s field by 4 seconds.
Finally, Team USA’s mixed 4x100m medley relay got the job done securing gold in a collective result of 3:45.82. That’s on the heels of the American boys having notched a new 4x100m free relay World Junior Record on night one.
Australia had a strong showing in its own right, securing 2 golds to now up its ranking in the medal table. Senior World Championships medalist Flynn Southam was the boys’ 200m freestyle victor while Jaclyn Barclay was too quick to catch in the girls’ 100m backstroke.
