Having started the day with a world record of 57.73 in the 100IM heats, Katinka Hosszu opened the second session of finals at the FINA World Cup in Eindhoven with a European and series short-course record of 4:22.18 in the 400m medley and then returned just under 2 hours later, via a 200 ‘fly victory, for a 57.50 world record victory in the 100m medley. That made it four world records and $40,000 in two days for Hosszu

Amazing how Hackett’s 14:10.10 from 2001 still remains unchallenged. The oldest WR by 7 years.

Just amazing from Hosszu.

Does anyone know if Magnussen’s 45.60 was a textile best by the way? I remember Nystrand dipping under 46 before the suit era…

Craig Lord

Yes, it is: I added a note to the first day finals session later on… 45.60 is 9th best performance ever and best ever in textile

Fabien

I believe Vlad Morozov had a 45.52 as first leg of 4×100 free final at s/c wordlchampionship 2012, Istambul, Turkey.

Huh, I didn’t realize until now that Maggie was that fast! Okay, now I’m not wondering anymore how Magnussen managed to beat Morozov. They are going to have a rematch in Berlin so let’s see if there is still room for an improvement.

Craig Lord

Good spot… quite right… making Magnussen 2nd best ever…. and best ever in a solo swim… Berlin looks like it might change all of that…

I agree about Hackett’s 1,500 free SCM WR.

Stunning. No one has ever gotten near it, even in rubber suit. And it’s been 12 years since.

That’s also why I was so bummed that Ian Thorpe’s was beaten by Biedermann by only 0.01 second. I remember watching it live and thinking and praying in the final 25 meters… please stop at 3:40.08 or less..please…
Thorpe’s 3:40.08 is still the longest ever male textile WR. The previous longest textile WR was Hoogie’s 100 WR until Magnussen broke it in Shanghai.

don’t tell me about thorpie WR !! I was also praying for him to stop just outside lol I’m fuming when I think about the holdup on that record !!! it was one of the best swim of all time and it just disapeared from the books like it was nothing !! =( the responsible is FINA but I still bear a grudge with biedermann =s eventhough i know I shouldn’t. Anywayz the day someone break it properly I will be so overjoyed !!!

Lennart van Haaften

Thorpe in his recent book wrote that he actually held back in the last 50 meters of the race having in mind his busy schedule and the upcoming PanPacs, and that he could have broken 3.40 (I don’t remember the exact words). I think he regretted it. Lesson learned: never hold back when you are on a WR pace.

aswimfan

I’m not surprised.

Really, everyone was expecting him to take the WR to unfathomable 3:38.

I do think he never fully realized all his potentials, as great as his achievements were.
