As foretold by the heat sheets, Phoebe Bacon manhandled the competition in the women’s 100 back, sprinting to a 59.47 finish to mark the only woman under 1:00 in the field. Bettering her time of 59.66 from this morning, Bacon successfully captured the gold while improving on her season best. Canada’s Danielle Hanus pushed her from the adjacent lane, crashing the pads with a 1:00.34 to edge out Brazil’s Etiene Medeiros, who slashed her time from prelims to make her way on the podium from lane seven.

America’s Ali De Loof found herself just outside of medal range with her 1:01.17, settling for fourth ahed of Brazil’s Fernanda De Goeij (1:01.59). Madison Broad came home quickly for a time of 1:02.44, tallying more points for her country while beating Carmen Marquez (1:03.07) and Krystal Garzoni (1:03.18) in the far lanes.
