2019 FINA WORLD AQUATICS CHAMPIONSHIPS

Darragh Greene of Ireland set a new National Record in the men’s 100 breaststroke during the first preliminary session at the 2019 World Championships in Gwangju, clocking a time of 59.82.

Greene’s swim lowered his old mark of 59.92, set in the semi-finals of the European Championships last August. That swim actually tied him for eighth overall with Russian Kirill Prigoda, and the two had a swim-off to see who would advance to the final. Prigoda ended up winning handily – 59.39 to 1:00.44.

Comparing his two record swims, he was out much quicker today but faded coming down the stretch:

Greene, 2018 Euros Greene, 2019 Worlds
28.40 27.95
31.52 31.87
59.92 59.82

He has now been under a minute three times, also doing so at the Irish Open in March in 59.98.

The 23-year-old ends up on the outside looking in for the semi-finals, placing 17th overall. Andrius Sidlauskas of Lithuania took the last spot into the semis in 59.75.

Adam Peaty leads the field after a blistering morning swim of 57.59, falling just 0.12 outside of his Championship Record set two years ago in Budapest.

2019 FINA WORLD AQUATICS CHAMPIONSHIPS

19-year-old Barbora Seemanova continued her incredible run of improvement in the women’s 400 freestyle during the first prelim session at the World Championships in Gwangju, setting a new Czech National Record in a time of 4:09.73.

Entering the 2019 calendar year with a personal best of 4:21.36, Seemanova has now reset it six times. After getting down to a 4:14.38 in March, she clocked a 4:13.29 at the Canet stop of the Mare Nostrum Tour in June, and then finally got under the National Record a few days later in Barcelona. She touched in 4:13.10, slipping under Barbora Zavadova‘s 2014 mark of 4:13.18.

She brought it down even further a few days later at the Czech Championships, going 4:11.10, and now finds herself under 4:10.

Check out a split comparison between her old and new records below:

Seemanova, June 2019 Seemanova, July 2019
28.50 27.53
1:00.21 (31.71) 58.55 (31.02)
1:31.83 (31.62) 1:30.13 (31.58)
2:03.97 (32.14) 2:02.06 (31.93)
2:35.89 (31.92) 2:34.21 (32.15)
3:08.02 (32.13) 3:06.63 (32.42)
3:40.12 (32.10) 3:38.87 (32.24)
4:11.10 (30.98) 4:09.73 (30.86)

The 2018 Czech Junior Athlete of the Year is the National Record holder in the 50, 100 and 200 freestyle (LCM) as well, and also owns the 100, 200 and 400 marks in short course.

Competing in her LC World Championship debut, she ended up finishing 13th overall in the event. Katie Ledecky of the United States is the top qualifier in a time of 4:01.84.

2019 FINA WORLD AQUATICS CHAMPIONSHIPS

Elena Di Liddo set a new Italian National Record in the preliminaries of the women’s 100 fly during the opening session of the 2019 FINA World Championships in Gwangju, putting up a time of 57.18.

Di Liddo’s swim broke the previous mark of 57.22 set by Ilaria Bianchi last August at the Italian Summer Championships in Rome.

Comparing the splits of the two, they are nearly identical:

Bianchi, 2018 Di Liddo, 2019
26.68 26.71
30.54 30.47
57.22 57.18

The 25-year-old Di Liddo came into the meet with a personal best of 57.38, set at the 2018 Sette Colli Trophy, and had been 57.51 in the event at that same competition this year (a time that had her tied for ninth in the world coming into Worlds).

She advances fourth overall heading into the semi-finals, trailing world record holder Sarah Sjostrom (56.45), Australian Emma McKeon (56.90), and Canadian Maggie MacNeil (57.10).

Bianchi qualified 15th overall in a time of 58.26.

Di Liddo was the bronze medalist in this event at the European Championships last August, and was also the silver medalist at the 2017 World University Games.

2019 FINA WORLD AQUATICS CHAMPIONSHIPS

Katinka Hosszu may have a grueling schedule ahead of her this week in Gwangju, but the “Iron Lady” didn’t look to be holding back this morning, as she dropped a 2:07.02 in the prelims of the 200 IM.

That swim was notable for a few different reasons. First, she had the fastest breaststroke split in the field by almost a second (36.14), out splitting a group that included some pretty strong breaststrokers  like Ye Shiwen, Sydney Pickrem, and Melanie Margalis.

Second, Hosszu touched the wall well over two seconds faster than any other swimmer, and she looked like she was in cruise control the whole time. That would seem to indicate that any other swimmer is going to face a stiff challenge if they’re going to prevent Hosszu from claiming her 4th-straight title in the event.

Finally, Hosszu’s performance this morning was the 7th-fastest ever and she owns five of the top seven times ever. Siobhan O’Connor (2:06.88) and Ariana Kukors (2:06.15) are the only other two women in the top seven, while Hosszu holds the world record at 2:06.00.

For reference, here’s how Hosszu’s splits from this morning compare to her world record record swim from 2015 Worlds and and her gold medal swim at 2017 Worlds.

Fly Back Breast Free Total
Kazan 2015 27.3 31.64 36.7 30.48 2:06.12
Budapest 2017 27.07 31.99 37.33 30.61 2:07.00
Gwanju 2019 27.67 32.98 36.14 30.23 2:07.02

2019 FINA WORLD AQUATICS CHAMPIONSHIPS

Four-time Olympic medalist Mireia Belmonte had a disappointing start to her World Championship campaign today in Gwangju, failing to advance out of the preliminaries of the women’s 200 IM.

The Spaniard placed 21st overall in a time of 2:14.93, over five seconds off her best of 2:09.45 from 2013.

Belmonte has a long history of battling injuries, including dealing with a nagging shoulder issue for several years. Recently, she withdrew from last summer’s European Championships due to health concerns that included bouts of dizziness, and then back in November it was revealed she was battling an ankle injury.

However, it was announced in February that she was back training in full force.

It isn’t a massive surprise to see the 28-year-old miss the semis in this event, as she did the same thing at the 2017 Championships, and was 16th in the event in Rio. It is worth noting, though, that her time was just over a second faster in Budapest (2:13.82).

She went on to have a successful showing there with three medals, including a gold in the 200 fly.

Belmonte is also slated to compete in the women’s 400 freestyle later this session, and also has entries in the 800 free, 1500 free, 200 fly and 400 IM later on in the competition.

Katinka Hosszu was the top qualifier in a time of 2:07.02, less than a second outside of her world record (2:06.12).

2019 FINA WORLD AQUATICS CHAMPIONSHIPS

FINA has published the start lists for heats of the women’s 4×100 meter freestyle relay and the men’s 4×100 meter freestyle relay, the final two events of the morning session on Day 1 of 2019 World Aquatics Championships in Gwangju.

View the full women’s 400 free relay lineups here.

For the Aussie women, Emma McKeon is being saved for finals while both Campbell sisters will be used in prelims. Likewise, Canada has decided to save Taylor Ruck for finals as they are utilizing Penny Oleksiak and Maggie MacNeil in the prelims relay. The Australian women are a little short on depth after the still-unexplained withdrawal of Shayna Jack at the last minute. McKeon is swimming a big schedule this week, with up to 8 events, so every swim that the Australians can keep off her plate should help her in the long-run.

The USA women will have four swimmers fending for 2 finals spots as Simone Manuel and Mallory Comerford will be rested for the evening final, should the US qualify. Abbey Weitzeil is the strongest contender to go into finals, so it will be down to veterans Allison Schmitt, Margo Geer, and Lia Neal for the remaining finals spot (unless 2 of them surprise and do well enough to knock Weitzeil out).

Swimming in lane one of the second heat are the Swedish relay, who are using their big guns to make the top 8. Michelle Coleman will lead off, followed by Sarah Sjostrom, Hanna Eriksson, and Louise Hansson. The relay is seeded with a time of 3:43.17, nearly 5 seconds off of 8th-place seed Russia, but with that lineup, including the World Record holder Sjostrom, they are likely to finish much faster than that in the heats.

Top 8 Countries’ Lineups:

Da die 12 besten Staffeln der Vorläufe sich direkt für die Olympischen Spiele 2020 qualifizieren, schwimmen auch die schnellsten Deutschen im Vorlauf.

Vorläufe 400 m Freistil Männer

WR 3:40.07 BIEDERMANN Paul GER
CR 3:40.07 BIEDERMANN Paul GER
WJ 3:44.60 HORTON Mack AUS

Florian Wellbrock hätte auch über die 400 m Freistil starten können, die Nominierungszeit hatte er geschafft. Auf diesen Start verzichtete er jedoch. 5 Vorläufe sind zu sehen, in Lauf 4 startet einer der Favoriten, Mack Horton aus Australien, in Lauf 5 der Chinese Sun Yang. Horton hatte Gold in Rio über diese Strecke gehört. Sun Yang muss sich im September wegen seines Verhaltens bei einer unangekündigten Dopingprobe noch vor dem Internationalen Sportgerichtshof CAS rechtfertigen.

Im vierten Lauf wurde es dann schnell. Gabriele Detti schlug als Erster in 3:45,49 Minuten vor Mack Horton in 3:45,51 Minuten an. Über die 400 m Freistil geht es direkt für die acht Schnellsten ins Finale. Im letzten Lauf waren aber noch drei Schwimmer schneller mit Sun Yang, Danas Rapsys und Jack McLoughlin.

Die Australier, die Chinesen und die Italiener haben jeweils zwei Schwimmer im Finale. Felix Auböck aus Österreich erreichte den 13. Platz in 3.48,78 Minuten.

TOP 8 ins Finale:

  1. Sun Yang CHN 3:44,10
  2. Danas Rapsys LTU 3:44,31
  3. Jack McLoughlin AUS 3:44,79
  4. Gabriele Detti ITA 3:45,49
  5. Mack Horton AUS 3:45,51
  6. Zane Grothe USA 3:45,83

Vorläufe 100 m Schmetterling Frauen

WR 55.48 SJOESTROEM Sarah SWE
CR 55.53 SJOESTROEM Sarah SWE
WJ 56.46 OLEKSIAK Penny CAN

Die Frage ist: Kann eine Schwimmerin Sarah Sjöström schlagen? Die 25-Jährige dominiert diese Strecke seit Jahren. Sjöström startet im 6. Vorlauf.

Angelina Köhler beendet ihren Lauf als 5. in 57,92, also nur knapp über ihrer Bestzeit von 57,85, also eine sehr gute Leistung für 18 Jährige. Als 11. zieht sie ins Halbfinale ein. Köhler wird die jüngste Schwimmerin im Halbfinale sein. Schnellste im 5. Lauf war Kelsi Dahlia in 57,22. Sarah Sjöström dominiert den letzten Lauf in 56,45 Sekunden.

TOP 16 ins Halbfinale:

  1. Sarah Sjöström SWE 56,45
  2. Emma McKeon AUS 56,90
  3. Margret Macneil CAN 57,10

Vorläufe 50 m Schmetterling Männer

WR 22.27 GOVOROV Andrii UKR
CR 22.67 CAVIC Milorad SRB Rome (ITA) 27 JUL 2009
WJ 23.22 ANDREW Michael USA

Insgesamt werden 10 Vorläufe ausgetragen, die schnellsten 16 Schwimmer kommen ins Halbfinale. Die Schnellsten starten in den letzten 3 Läufen. In Lauf 8 schlug Caeleb Dressel in 22,84 Sekunden zuerst an. In Lauf 9 gab es einen Frühstart, ein Schwimmer aus Südafrika fiel vor dem Startsignal ins Wasser, dies zog keine Disqualifikation nach sich. Michael Andrew, USA, gewinnt Lauf 9 in 23,09 Sekunden. Andrew ist 20 Jahre alt und der Jüngste der Topsprinter.

In Lauf 10 schlägt Marius Kusch als 8 in 23,86 an, insgesamt Platz 25. Seine persönliche Bestzeit sind 23,38 Sekunden, da er aber auch der schnellste deutsche 100 m Freistilschwimmer in diesem Jahr ist, ist sein Einsatz in der Staffel sehr wichtig. Das Halbfinale wäre heute, das Finale über 4x100m Freistil ebenfalls. Marius Kusch wird auch im Vorlauf später in der 4x100m Freistilstaffel schwimmen.

Eine Überraschung ist sicherlich der Ägypter Sameh, der als 15. in Halbfinale einzieht. Nicht im Halbfinale dagegen sind Laszlo Cseh und Joseph Schooling, der Olympiasieger 2016 über die 100 m Schmetterling. Ebenfalls abgemeldet hatte Chad Le Clos für diese Strecke.

By Robert Gibbs on SwimSwam

Fitter and Faster Swim Clinics is the proud sponsor of SwimSwam’s College Recruiting Channel and all commitment news. For many, swimming in college is a lifelong dream that is pursued with dedication and determination. Fitter and Faster is proud to honor these athletes and those who supported them on their journey.

New Stanford head coach Dan Schemmel didn’t have to travel far to find the second recruit for the Cardinal’s Class of 2024, as Cupertino, CA, native Ethan Hu announced his verbal commitment to Stanford University today.

I am beyond ecstatic to announce my commitment to Stanford University. It is an honor to have the opportunity to attend such a prestigious institution and continue my passion for swimming.
I would like to thank my coach Abi Liu; my friends and teammates; and my amazing mom and dad for their consistent love and support!
GO CARDINALS! #fearthetree

Hu swims for Harker High School, and won the 200 IM and the 100 fly at this year’s CIF championships. His winning time of 45.72 in the 100 fly rattled the national high school record and made him the 2nd-fastest high schooler ever in the event.

We ranked Hu 13th in our initial look at the high school class of 2020, done after their sophomore year, and 11th this past spring, but that was before the aforementioned CIF championships, so he looks like a good candidate to continue moving up in the recruit rankings.
While Stanford only has two recruits so far from this class that we know of, they are both high-quality recruits, as Hu will join #14 Rick Mihm on the Farm in the fall of 2020.
Top SCY Times:
  • 1o0 Fly – 45.72
  • 200 IM – 1:44.62
  • 50 Free – 20.25
  • 100 Breast – 56.11
  • 100 Back – 49.28

Hu will make an immediate impact for the Cardinal, whose 2018-2019 season was marred by missing some big names and a lack of sprint depth. Hu flat start 100 fly time was faster than the 46.24 fly split Stanford got in prelims of the 400 medley relay at NCAAs, as the Cardinal finished 19th and out missed either final.

His 50 free and 100 fly times suggest he’s far faster than his official best time of 45.85 in the 100 free, so Hu and Mihm should combine to form the core of Stanford’s sprint free relays for their four years together.

If you have a commitment to report, please send an email with a photo (landscape, or horizontal, looks best) and a quote to Recruits@swimswam.com.
