Urbanczyk Breaks Polish NR in 50 Back on Day 4 of European SC Champs

2015 EUROPEAN SHORT COURSE SWIMMING CHAMPIONSHIPS AT THE WINGATE INSTITUTE IN NETANYA, ISRAEL

In the first semi-final of the women’s 50 meter backstroke at 2015 European Championships, Aleksandra Urbanczyk lowered her own Polish national record with 26.83. That’s .05 off the 26.88 she went in heats to qualify for semi-finals, which was the fastest she had been since breaking the Polish record at the 2009 Polish Winter Championships with 26.94.

Urbanczyk was the third-fastest qualifier for the 50 back final behind Sanja Jovanovic of Croatia (26.60) and Katinka Hosszu of Hungary (26.65).

The European record in the women’s 50 back belongs to Jovanovic, who clocked a swift 25.70 at the 2009 European Short Course Championships in Istanbul.
