So how often does this happen? – Russia’s Stanislav Donets and Arkady Vyatchanin on the Istanbul 2009 LEN European Short Course Championships podium, after both having set a new world record of 48.97, bettering Vyatchanin’s 49.17 from the semis the day before. Donets won gold in all three backstroke events, back then, and bettered the world record again the year after at the Dubai 2010 World Championships (25m), to the current 48.95. Spain’s Aschwin Wildeboer Faber finished 3rd in 49.05, also under the 49.17 from the semis the day before.
