Martina Carraro lowered the Italian record in the women’s 100-meter breast at the 2016 Italian Nationals.

Carraro raced her way to a 1:06.41.  That swim broke the 2009 Italian record of 1:06.86 set by Ilaria Scarcella. Carraro’s time also moved her up to sixth in the world rankings this year.

Scarcella, meanwhile, finished second overall in 1:08.46, missing the FINA A cut of 1:07.85.

Arianna Castiglioni (1:08.69), Lisa Angiolini (1:09.02), Giulia Verona (1:09.37), Michela Guzzetti (1:09.46), Lisa Fissneider (1:10.04) and Francesca Fangio (1:10.20) cranked out the rest of the finishes in the A final.
