After a particularly rough FINA World Cup circuit during which she’s drawn disqualifications on a routine basis, Russia’s Yuliya Efimova finally had her major breakthrough as she clipped the world record in the sprint breaststroke event. Efimova raced her way to a 28.71 in the event to take down Jessica Hardy’s 2009 effort of 28.80 posted at the Berlin stop of the FINA World Cup circuit that year.
