The nation of China had a big day four here in Budapest in terms of making moves within the overall swimming medal table. With a total of 6 medals to their credit, China rocketed up the standings from the 11th spot yesterday to now jump up to 3rd behind the U.S. and Italy.
China came up big in the women’s 200m free, collecting a gold and a bronze. Yang Junxuan posted a winning time of 1:54.92 as the only racer to clock a mark under the 1:55 second threshold. She led a 2-medal punch, with teammate Tang Muhan hitting 1:56.25 for bronze behind Australia’s Mollie O’Callaghan’s silver (1:55.22).
The United States extended its lead, however, with Bobby Finke reaping the gold in the men’s 800m free, Nic Fink becoming the nation’s first-ever gold medalist in the 50m breast and the U.S. mixed medley relay dominating that final to land atop the podium.
