Australia’s Mitch Larkin, the big winner in Tokyo, raced his way to a sizzling 52.26 to break his Australian and Commonwealth records at the 2015 FINA World Cup Doha.

That swim broke the 52.37 leadoff time he set for Australia at the 2015 World Championships, and is just behind Ryan Murphy‘s 52.18 at the top of the world this year.

That swim vaulted Larkin into a sixth-ranked tie all time with Junya Koga in the men’s 100-meter backstroke chart.
