Australia’s Mitchell Larkin collected his third gold medal at the FINA Swimming World Cup 2019 in Jinan, as he touched home first in the men’s 100m back in 53.79. Larkin also won the 200m IM and 200m back.
Cate Campbell of Australia, who won the 50m fly just for fun on Friday, returned to her signature on the final day of the FINA Swimming World Cup 2019 leg in Jinan – the 100m free – and won the race in a new World Cup record 52.34. Sweden’s Michelle Coleman finished second in 53.73, while the bronze went to China’s Zhang Yuhan in 56.52.
Asked why he was so fast in Jinan, Rapsys said: “I don’t know. Maybe a little bit rested (after Tokyo). But I did want to go under 45 (1:45), it was very close. For now, it’s good.”
