Katarzyna Wilk has broke another Polish record, this time in the women’s 100 free on the second day of the 2019 Polish Nationals.

The 27-year-old led off the 400 free relay in finals with a 54.22, breaking her own national record of 54.38 from back in 2016. Wilk’s relay also set a new national record for the 400 free relay, touching in 3:42.87 to take four seconds off of the previous mark. That bodes well for her individual 100 free, which is scheduled for the fourth day of the meet.


That continues a strong meet for Wilk, who opened the meet yesterday by becoming the first Polish woman to break 25 seconds in the 50 free when she posted a new national record of 24.73 in prelims, slashing almost 4-tenths off her personal best.

Other notable swims from the second night of finals includes a win in the 200 free for Kacper Majchrzak (1:47.32) that is about a second off his own national record, and Weronika Hallmann’s win in the 100 breast (1:08.75) that was less than a second off the Polish national record.
