Katinka Hosszu cranked out another world record at the 2015 European Short Course Championships.

Just days after taking back the 400 IM global standard from Mireia Belmonte, Hosszu cleared her own record in the 100 IM.

Hosszu clocked a top time of 56.67 to win the 100 IM gold this evening.  She split the race 25.96, 56.67 (30.71) en route to her second win of the night.

Hosszu set the previous world record with a time of 56.70 at the 2014 World Short Course Championships.  She split that raced 26.17, 56.70 (30.53).

Earlier tonight, Hosszu took down a meet record in the women’s 200-meter back with a time of 1:59.84.  That swim just missed her world record of 1:59.23 also set at the 2014 World Short Course Championships.

“It’s always an awesome feeling to break a world record. I’m really happy, since I felt after the 200m back that the crowd was a bit disappointed. Me too, I can tell you, but I should also add that it was me who set the bar really high. Now I managed to clear it once more and it’s a pleasure that I could offer some entertainment for the fans who are really enthusiastic here.” – Katinka Hosszu

More to come.
