From our finals recap, courtesy of SwimSwam’s Jeff Grace: 

Swedish star Sarah Sjostrom had a very strong first evening of competition at the Bergen Swim Festival in Norway.

In the very first event Sjostrom took the women’s 200 freestyle in a time of 1:54.77. She was just off of Femke Heemskerk‘s world leading time of 1:55.75. It is a season’s best for Sjostrom who put up a 1:55.75 at the Swedish Grand Prix in April.

Katinka Hosszu finished second in a time of 1:56.90.

Cecilie Johannsessen finished third in a time of 1:59.42. Johannessen’s time breaks her own national record of 2:00.18. That was the first of two national records set by the Norwegian who posted 25.45 in the 50 freestyle breaking the 2012 record of 25.70 set by Henriette Brekke.
