Kliment Kolesnikov of Russia continues to chip away at the World Junior and European Junior records in the short course meter men’s 50 free.

The 17-year-old dashed to a top showing of 23.10 in prelims at the 2017 European SC Championships, lowering his own existing World Junior and European Junior records of 23.28. His previous records were set less than a month previously in Kazan, Russia.

Kolesnikov’s consistency and continued growth puts him close to breaking the 23-second mark and leaves a high possibility of him taking down his own record in semi-finals of the 50 free.
