DOHA – Ranomi Kromowidjojo continued a busy, yet successful, night with a winning effort in the 50 free at the FINA World Short Course Championships. Watch Race Video

Kromowidjojo put up a 23.32 for the win, just missing Marleen Veldhuis’ meet record of 23.25 and Kromowidjojo’s world record of 23.24.  But, her time was good enough to be a new world leader.  Kromowidjojo had the previous top time this year with a 23.43 here at Worlds.

Kromowidjojo’s win gave her the Dutch record for most gold medals (8) at short course worlds.  Femke Heemskerk is second with seven and could tie Kromowidjojo later tonight in the 200 free.

Australia’s Bronte Campbell grabbed second in 23.62 with Germany’s Dorothea Brandt taking third in 23.77.

USA’s Madison Kennedy finished fourth in 23.86, just missing Dara Torres’ American record of 23.82 from 2007.

Bahamas’ Arianna Vanderpool-Wallace (23.93), The Netherlands’ Inge Dekker (24.02), Italy’s Erika Ferraioli (24.09) and Russia’s Rozaliya Nasretdinova (24.19) also put up swims in finals.
