Lithuania’s Ruta Meilutyte, the world-record holder in the event, posted a smooth victory in the women’s 100-meter breast at the 2016 European Championships.

Meilutyte won the finale in a time of 1:06.17, just off her meet record of 1:06.16 set earlier in the meet, and well off her third-ranked season best of 1:05.82 from the Edinburgh International meet.

Iceland’s Hilda Luthersdottir raced her way to second overall in 1:06.45 to move to eighth in the world rankings.  Great Britain’s Chloe Tutton picked up bronze in a time of 1:07.50.

Ireland’s Fiona Doyle (1:07.76), Italy’s Martina Carraro (1:07.81), Turkey’s Viktoria Zeynep Gunes (1:07.83), Great Britain’s Molly Renshaw (1:07.93) and Sweden’s Sophie Hansson (1:07.99) rounded out the championship swimmers.
