Sarah Sjostrom Thunders To 23.83 World Textile Best To Prune Pernille Blume

Sarah Sjostrom. By Patrick B. Kraemer

Sarah Sjostrom is the fastest woman swimmer the world has ever known without the buoy of a shiny suit. Today in Stockholm, she stopped the clock at the Swim Open just 0.1sec shy of Britta Steffen’s 50m freestyle world record as she thundered home in 23.83secs: the fastest in textile-suit time in history and second fastest all suits. The 23-year-old had served notice of her intentions with a 24.01 this morning – the fastest heats swim in history – and she returned to again leave Olympic champion Pernille Blume trailing in her wake, the Dane 0.32secs adrift in 24.15.
