Ahead of Therese Alshammar but not her 23.88 from Rome 2009 in shiny suit, Sarah Sjöström claimed a third gold in as many days at Swedish nationals in a swift 24.20 over 50m freestyle at Swedish nationals in Norrköping. Sjostrom took the 200m free in 1:54.3 and the 100m butterfly in 55.9 this week and will head to the Rio 2016 Olympic Games a title and medal hope in four solo events. One day she may get to Alshammar’s 23.88 as she chases Cate Campbell and a 23.84 world textile best but one pioneering line may be even harder to achieve: the longevity of Alshammar
