Shiny suits make the Russian 200m backstroke record a hard act to follow: 2:04.94, Anastasia Zueva, back in 2009, Rome circus and all that. None of which made a 2:09.70 Rio 2016 cut an impediment to Zueva, now Fesikova as wife of sprinter Sergei Fesikov, qualifying for the battle in Brazil at the Olympics in August: 2:08.74. And that was just the silver. The gold went to Daria K. Ustinova in 2:06.92, a career high inside her Russian junior mark from last August in Chartres beyond a home World Championships.
