Xu Jiayu 0.01sec Shy Of World Record At 51.86; Fu & 58.7 Under China Record, Too

Xu Jiayu of China [by Aniko Kovacs]

Fu Yuanhui scorched a 58.72 national-record victory in the 100m backstroke on day 3 at the Chinese Championships and 13th National Games in Qingdao today; and Sun Yang* bypasses 1:45s to take helm of 200 free world ranks in 1:44.9

Of the current group of Chinese swimmers, I hope the most that Fu is clean. She has this wonderful personality that transcends language barriers, and I’d hate to see that image tarnished.

I’m sure the Stanford women’s group is seeing the results come in and using it as motivation as they hit the cold water in the morning.
