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.
