Angharad Evans Sets British 100m Breaststroke Record Of 1:05.54

Angharad Evans set a British 100m breaststroke record of 1:05.54 at the AP Race London International held over the weekend.

The event, which is one of a number of projects run under the Adam Peaty banner, saw Evans split 31.02/34.52 to become the first British woman inside 1:06.

Molly Renshaw set the previous national standard of 1:06.21 back in 2021 with the two-time Olympian having now retired.

Evans’ career best had stood at 1:06.25 since the Edinburgh International in March before clocking 1:06.54 at the British Olympic trials at the Aquatics Centre last month.

That left her at the mercy of the selectors before she was picked to make the trip to Paris.

Her time has elevated Evans to sixth in the world rankings in 2024.

I wonder where that places their Women’s 4×100m Medley?
Obviously the USA are strong favourites, Australia has potential if we can find a good breastroke leg, China are contenders along with Canada. So who else and what order behind the Americans?
