Emilia Pikkarainen sets Finnish record in the 100 butterfly

At the Märsky-uinnit 2012 yesterday, Finland’s Emilia Pikkarainen set a new Finnish record in the women’s 100 meter (long course) butterfly, clocking 59.07 in the morning heats and closing in fast on the FINA A Qualifying time of 58.70. Her old record was 59.26 from the Swedish Grand Prix 3 meet in Stockholm in March, the record before that a 59.39 from (I think) the Finnish National Championships in 2009.
