Rikako Ikee also won her second gold medal of the meet on Monday night in Jakarta, Indonesia but she won her first individual gold medal with the 50 fly. Ikee swam a 25.55 to break the Games Record of 25.83 by Lu Ying of China from 2014. This is only the fourth time the 50 fly has been contested at the Games and it is the first gold medal for Japan as only Singapore (2) and China (1) have won golds.

Ikee was the only to break 26 seconds in the final with Wang Yichun (26.03) and Lin Xintong (26.39) of China getting in the silver and bronze medal positions.

South Korea had two in the final with Park Yerin (26.53) and An Sehyeon (26.67) getting fourth and fifth.

Singapore’s Ting Quah (26.73), Taipei’s Huang Meichien (26.89) and Hong Kong’s Kin Lok Chan (27.22) also swam in the final.
