Swimming Men – 100m Back | Top Moments | FINA World Championships 2019 – Gwangju


The men’s 100m Backstroke race at the FINA World Championships 2019 in Gwangju, brought a lot of excitements as four swimmers were heading towards the wall forming an almost straight line.

Title-holder Xu Jiaju of China found the necessary extra gear to touch home first, 0.24sec ahead of Russia’s Evgeny Rylov. Tiny margins decided the bronze, three stormed in within 0.05sec, 2015 world champion Mitch Larkin (AUS) was the fastest, ahead of the two US Olympic champs (and the medallists in 2017) Ryan Murphy and Matt Grevers.
