Another victory for Sarah Sjostrom and another World Cup record in Kazan. After setting the women’s 100 fly mark during prelims Sunday, she went even faster in finals.

Sjostrom won the race in 57.42, breaking the mark of 57.56 that she set in prelims to share the record with Japan’s Rikako Ikee, who reached that time in 2015.

Now, Sjostrom has the record all to herself. It was her third World Cup record of the meet.

Belgium’s Kimberly Buys finished second in 58.33, followed by Switzerland’s Alexandra Touretski (59.17) and a pair of Dutch swimmers, Ranomi Kromowidjojo (59.20) and Kim Busch (59.92).
