On Monday at the 2017 Swedish Open, Swedish swimmer Sarah Sjostrom swam the second-fastest 50 meter freestyle in history when she touched in 23.83. That broke Therese Alshammar’s National Record of 23.88 and left Sjostrom behind only retired German swimmer Britta Steffen (23.73) for the World Record.
