Another handful of world record fell on day three of the 2015 FINA World Masters Championships.

World Records

Switzerland’s Julien Baillod of Schwinnclub Uster Wallisellen downed the men’s 35-39 400-meter IM world record with a 4:38.50.

That swim eclipsed the previous record of 4:42.45 set by France’s Nicolas Granger in 2002.

South Africa’s Sanderina Kruger of Cape Town Msc powered her way to a 2:37.63 in the women’s 65-69 200-meter free.

That performance erased her own world record of 2:38.79 from 2014.

Great Britain’s Emma Gage of Trafford Metro Bor Swim Club hit the wall in 27.10 in the women’s 25-29 50-meter fly.

That swim cleared the previous world record of 27.55 by South Africa’s Elzanne Werth in March of this year.

Meet Records

Brazil’s Marcus Mattioli of Minas Tenis Clube clocked a time of 2:04.02 in the men’s 55-59 200-meter freestyle. That just missed Michael Mann’s world record of 2:04.01 from 2009.

Australia’s Dorothy Dickey of the Doncaster Dolphins posted a 3:58.30 in the women’s 85-89 200-meter free for the meet record.  That time is also faster than the listed world record of 3:49.67 set by Jean Troy in 2012.

Czech’s Petr Gregor of Swimmpower Prague touched in 25.63 in the men’s 40-44 50-meter fly for the meet record.  That’s still well back of Serkan Atasay’s world record of 25.07 from 2011.

Russia’s Aleksei Manzhula of Neva Stars won the men’s 35-39 50-meter fly in a meet-record 25.44.  The world record is a 24.69 from Ryk Neethling in 2012.

Russia’s Andrey Denisko of Troyka tied the meet record in the men’s 25-29 50-meter fly with a 25.07.  Kohei Kawamoto holds the world record in the age division with a 23.71 from 2008.

Germany’s Christel Schulz of Sg Einheit Rathenow turned in a 40.33 to win the women’s 75-79 50-meter fly.  That swim fell just short of her world record of 40.06 from March of this year.

Russia’s Irina Shlemova of Tsunami put up a 28.04 to win the women’s 30-35 50-meter fly in a meet record time.  That’s a bit short of Martina Moravcova’s world record of 27.48 from 2008.
