Ukraine’s Andriy Govorov smashes World Record in 50 fly (video)


On the last day of the Sette Colli meet in Rome, Italy, it was Andriy Govorov of Ukraine who smashed the World Record in the 50 fly final with a 22.27.

Govorov blasted the record of 22.43 held by Spain’s Rafael Munoz from April 2009, according to Swimming World.

He narrowly missed the World Record at the Mare Nostrum earlier this summer.

Govorov, 26, was third in Budapest last summer in the 50 fly. He is also the first Ukrainian swimmer to hold a World Record since Yana Klochkova had the 400 IM record from 2000-2007.

Govorov won the final ahead of reigning World Champion Ben Proud (22.93) of Great Britain and Mathys Goosen (23.55) of the Netherlands.
