Brazil’s Felipe Silva Pops Meet Record in 100 Breast for Gold at Worlds – Video

DOHA – Brazil’s Felipe Silva popped a meet record in the 100 breast to the win tonight at the FINA World Short Course Championships. Watch Race Video

Brazil’s Felipe Silva put together a swift meet record in the 100 breast for the victory tonight at the FINA World Short Course Championships.

Silva threw down a sizzling 56.29 to lower Adam Peaty’s meet record of 56.43 from yesterday.  That swim just missed Silva’s top-ranked season best of 56.25 from the Jose Finkel Trophy meet in Brazil.

This is Silva’s first 100 breast world title.  He already won the 50 in 2010, and had an amazing breaststroke split to help Brazil set a world record in the 200 medley relay earlier tonight.

Peaty, meanwhile, checked in with a 56.35 for silver tonight, while France’s Giacomo Perez-Dortona finished third in 56.78.

World-record holder Cameron van der Burgh of South Africa touched fourth in 56.80 with Japan’s Yasuhiro Koseki tying Slovenia’s Damir Dugonjic for fifth with 57.06s.

Russia’s Kirill Prigoda (57.19) and USA’s Cody Miller (57.39) rounded out the top eight.

Name 50 100
Silva 26.32 56.29
Peaty 26.55 56.35
Perez-Dortona 26.59 56.78
