CC photo #89: Dániel Gyurta after his 200 breaststroke win in Rome 2009


Hungary’s Dani Gyurta very happy after his men’s 200 meter breaststroke win at the Rome 2009 World Aquatics Championships. Winning time 2:07.64, Australia’s Christian Sprenger had set the 2:07.31 world record in the semifinal the day, but swam 2:07.80 in the final, joint 3rd with Lithuanian Giedrius Titenis, USA’s Eric Shanteau in between with a 2:07.65. Tired swimmers in the pool are (I guess) Eric Shanteau on lane 5 and Italy’s Loris Facci on lane 7, see startlist.
