Norway’s Tomoe Hvas has smashed his previous National Record in the 200m backstroke on Day 1 of Match #10.
While racing for LA Current, Hvas posted a time of 1:53.54, over 1.5 seconds faster than his previous record mark of 1:55.10 from March 2018.
Here’s a comparison of his splits in the old and new records:
|Old Record||New Record|
|100m||28.27 (54.86)||27.94 (54.66)|
|150m||30.02 (1:24.88)||28.96 (1:23.62)|
|200m||30.22 (1:55.10)||29.92 (1:53.54)|
For Hvas, he now holds National Records in 7 individual events, many of which he has broken and re-broken more than once.
During Match #3 he set a new record mark in the 100 IM with a time of 51.72. The previous record in that event belonged to his countrymate Markus Lie and stood at 52.12.
His 200 back time today places him a second behind the Nordic Record mark of 1:52.51, which was set by Danish swimmer Anders Jensen in 2009. Notably, three of Hvas’ National Norweigan record marks are also Nordic Records: 100m butterfly (49.88), 100IM (51.72), and 200IM (1:51.74).
This is the first time Hvas has appeared in this event for the Current, with his team opting for other swimmers in their previous matches.
The 20-year-old is competing in his debut ISL season for the current, after being added to the team in early September.
