South African swimmer Tatjana Schoenmaker smashed one of swimming’s longest-standing world records as she took victory in the 200 meters breaststroke. The 24-year-old surged away from American duo Lilly King and Annie Lazor to become the first female swimmer to dip under 2 minutes and 19 seconds for a 200-meter breaststroke. Her time of 2 minutes, 18.95 seconds beat the record of Denmark’s Rikke Moller Pedersen, who swam 2 minutes, 19.11 seconds in the semi-finals of the 2013 World Aquatics Championships in Barcelona.
