Sarah Sjostrom came within 0.02secs of Cate Campbell’s 100m freestyle world record when she wrapped up her Mare Nostrum campaign by thundering to 52.08 in Canet accompanied by a 24.95 blast in the 50 fly.

Another outstanding performance from Sjostrom. I can’t think of a more impressive run over a season, with more to come, from anyone. I would be curious to know to what degree opting out of the 200m free has impacted on her times. She’s flying.
