Manuella Lyrio downed a 16-year-old meet record in the women’s 200-meter free at the 2015 Jose Finkel Trophy.

Lyrio clocked a top time of 1:58.65, smashing the previous record of 1:59.98 set by Nadejda Tchemezova in 1999.  She just missed her South American and Brazilian record of 1:58.03 from earlier this summer.

Leah Neale took second in 1:58.69, while Larissa Oliveira wound up third in 2:00.72.
