Sarah Sjostrom Streamlines To Another World Cup Brace On Way To Tour Triumph

Sarah Sjostrom - by Patrick B. Kraemer

There was no getting down to that 50.25 world record Cate Campbell set at Australian nationals last month nor even a sub-51 in sight but the racing lost nothing for all that in the women’s 100m freestyle. Campbell was at the half-way mark in 24.72, Sarah Sjostrom, of Sweden, just 0.03sec away, Ranomi Kromowidjojo, of the Netherlands, on 25.17. On the way home there was just 0.01sec between the pace of Campbell and Kromowidjojo on their way to respective efforts of 51.45 and 51.91 but Sjostrom’s 25.50 return gave her the edge, the clock stopped in 51.25. Sjostrom also claimed the 100 ‘fly – in a dominant 55. There were world junior marks from Wang of China and Andrew of USA; and Vlad Morozon produced the swim of the meet when he fell 0.06sec shy of his own world record in the 100IM.
