Day 2 of the 2019 Dutch Short Course Championships saw several meet records bite the dust on both the men’s and women’s sides in Tilburg.
Arno Kamminga, the man who took 2 gold medals at this year’s European Short Course Championships, produced a winning 200m breast effort of 2:04.43 to take gold this evening. That checked in as a new Championships Record for the 24-year-old national record holder.
Kira Toussaint, Kamminga’s double European Short Course champion counterpart on the women’s side, took the 100m back in a new meet record of 56.70. Toussaint also took the women’s 100m free, registering a time of 53.04 to top the field.
The men’s 400m IM saw Arjan Knipping get his hand on the wall first in a time of 4:08.29, winning the race by over 11 seconds.
Kyle Stolk was the fastest men’s 100m free racer, stopping the clock in 46.88. Behind him was 18-year-old Kenzo Simons, who produced a silver medal-worthy effort of 47.23 to establish a new age record for 18-year-old Dutchmen.
In the men’s 800m free, Norwegian dynamo Henrik Christiansen nailed a winning mark of 7:30.79. That beat out runner-up Lucas Kroon who touched in 7:44.18 to notch a new Dutch national record for his effort.
Finally, the men’s 4x200m free relay was successful in taking down the meet record. The foursome of Arjan Knipping (1:47.19), Maarten Brzokowski (1:44.05), Kyle Stolk (1:45.34) and Stan Pijnenberg (1:47.17) combined to clock a new mark of 7:03.75
