Make that two World Cup records for Sweden’s Sarah Sjostrom, too.

After watching Vladimir Morozov claim his second World Cup record of the meet, Sjostrom crushed the field and the previous record in the 50 fly.

Sjostrom, who won the 200 free earlier in the day, won the 50 fly in 25.39, beating the old World Cup record set by Denmark’s Jeanette Ottesen in 2015 (25.51).

Ranomi Kromowidjojo of the Netherlands had a strong race, too, finishing second in 26.09.

Belgium’s Kimberly Buys was third in 26.11, holding off Russia’s Mariia Kameneva (26.22).

Hosszu, swimming in her fourth event of the day, finished eighth in 27.95.
