As an encore to crushing the SM10 World Record in the men’s 200 meter IM, Ukrainian Denys Dubrov returned to crush the World Record in the S10 100 fly final on Monday evening.
Dubrov and his countrymate Maksym Krypak both swam more than a second under the old World Record in the final, with Dubrov winning in 54.71 and Krypak taking 2nd in 54.90. The 3rd-place finisher, Andre Brasil from Brazil, touched in 56.50 – he was the old World Record holder at 55.99 from the 2010 World Championships.
Krypak and Dubrov both swam their lifetime bests in this event at the 2014 Ukrainian Championships (full championships, without para-classification), where Dubrov took 2nd in 53.66 and Krypak took 6th in 54.55. Four months after that race, Dubrov would race at the IPC European Championships representing the Ukraine, where he added 5 seconds and took a bronze medal.
Dubrov now has 5 total medals, including gold in the 100 fly and 200 IM. Krypak has 4 total medals, with golds in the 100 back and 50 free.
