Update: The European record was not Nadja Higl’s 2:21.62 from 2009, but Yuliya Efimova’s 2:20.92 from London 2012. I shouldn’t have trusted the data on livetiming ;-)
At the Danish Open 2013 today, Denmark’s Rikke Møller Pedersen blasted her 2:21.65 Danish record in the 200 breaststroke from the London 2012 Olympics with a new European record of 2:20.53, beating Russia’s Yuliya Efimova’s 2:20.92 record from the London 2012 Olympics. Easily the best time in the World this year. Awesome! See the result list here.
