The title went to Hong Kong’s Siobhan Haughey in 54.47, which broke the Meet Record set by American Lia Neal in 2011 at 54.90. That also re-broke the Hong Kong National Age Group Record for 15-17′s that she set in prelims, and came within a tenth of former NCAA standout Hannah Wilson’s overall National Record.
Australia’s Mack Horton has established himself as the swimmer of these championships, and in the boys’ 800 free on Wednesday, put up what is undoubtedly the swim of the meet so far.
In what could be termed a mild upset, American Kylie Stewart of the Dynamo Swim club won the girls’ 200 backstroke in 2:09.74, which is a new Championship Record. That broke the 2:10.43 that Ukrainian Daryna Zevina swam to win at the 2011 edition of this meet. (Photo Credit: Tim Binning, theswimpictures)
