Courtesy of Baku 2015 European Games on YouTube, we’ve got race videos of the finals from day 5 in Baku, including the Junior World Record 100 breast from Russia’s Anton Chupkov.
Below is a quick excerpt from our own Braden Keith‘s report on that record-breaking swim:
After his teammate Maria Astashkina broke the 200 breaststroke Junior World Record on Thursday, Russia’s Anton Chupkov broke the men’s mark in the 100 meter race on Saturday at the 2015 European Games in Baku, Azerbaijan.
In the final, Chupkov swam a 1:00.65, which not only broke the European Junior Championships Record/Euro Games Record; it was also faster than his own 1:00.84 from last year’s Youth Olympic Games.
Junior World Records are available to boys who are aged 15-18 at year’s end, and girls aged 14-17. Chupkov turned 18 in February.
