South Korean Yang Jaehoon wowed the home crowd in heat 10 of the men’s 50 freestyle on day six of the 2019 World Championships, setting a new National Record in a time of 22.26.
Yang, who received a raucous cheer from the fans after winning the heat, breaks the previous mark of 22.32 set by Yang Jung-doo in 2015.
Yang’s personal best time coming into the meet was 22.43, set just a few weeks ago at the World University Games in Napoli, Italy, where he finished in a tie for 11th.
This is his second World Championships appearance, as he competed two years ago in Budapest, placing 55th in the 50 free (23.05).
