“Kim Busch‘s 26.54 was announced as a world junior record”

This is confusing, is FINA even keeping track of short course world junior records already? Ikee’s 26.17 was long course.

Good point on short and long… I overlooked that … thanks Lennart … as for FINA, I have no idea – there are several world records set at a European Championships last year in Berlin, all with doping tests returned negative, that have not been ratified – and no-one at FINA asked ‘hey, what about those efforts – what’s the problem?’ Had they done so, the B samples could have been rested for epo (after a bureaucratic bungle) and all would have been well.
