2017 CHINESE NATIONAL CHAMPIONSHIPS
Videos have surfaced of some of the fast swims at the 2017 Chinese National Championships in Qingdao, China, which started on Monday, April 10th and will run through Wednesday, April 19th. Since the start of the meet, we’ve seen a handful of records go down.
Among the headliners are Chinese backstrokers Xu Jiayu and Fu Yuanhui, who brought the thunder with explosive swims on day 3. Jiayu cranked out a 51.86 in the 100 back, falling just .01 shy of the World Record and setting a new Asian Record en route to gold. Fu, on the other hand, took down her own Chinese National Record with a 58.72 in the women’s version of that event.
