Yuliya Efimova is on fire! A day after three championship records on the way to 50m breaststroke gold at the European Short-Course Championships, the California-based Trojan from Russia cracked the 200m breaststroke world record with a 2:14.39 victory. She then ended the second day of action as a member of the Russian mixed relay squad on a world record of 1:37.63 for her third gold of the championship; European record of 55.99 gives Benny’s little girl Mie Nielsen and Denmark gold in the 100m backstroke

Great championships with great marks. By the way, you have a bug, belmonte took her second gold no silver ;(

A very nice home crowd. I loved the way how they supported Danish swimmers. I’m so glad that Nielsen won the 100-meter back.

So thrilling to see what happens in the Women’s 100-meter breastroke. Will Efimova claim the triple? Regardless of her young age, Ruta is not used to leaving a championship level competition without a single gold.

Silver, gold, it all becomes such a blur at this time of year 🙂 … thanks

Adam Barrett also set a British record at Scottish Nationals – looks like his 50.05 would have got him silver in Herning…

Mie Nielsen is such an exciting talent.

With the retirement of Aya Terakawa, we need worthy competitors to Franklin in the 100 back, aside from Seebohm.

Thanks Kat
