Kylie Masse Delivers Fastest Jan-Feb 100 Back In History With 58.5 Win In Uster

Kylie Masse - Canadian swimming history in the making - by Patrick B. Kraemer

Canadian World champion Kylie Masse produced the swiftest ever 100m backstroke of any first two months of the year in history when she blasted a 58.54 over two laps at the Uster International Meet in Switzerland this evening. On Saturday, Britain’s Ben Proud blasted a 21.52 in the 50m freestyle: a meet record and, like Masse’s effort, right up there as one of the swiftest efforts in the two months of any year. Masse clocked 27.84 in the 50m and 2:07.47 over 200m on the first day of racing on Saturday to indicate fine form. All three times are among the top 3 efforts ever seen so early in any calendar year – and all three top the fledgling world rankings for 2018
