Turkey’s Viktoria Zeynep Gunes continued to be one of the top swimmers at the meet with a convincing win in the women’s 100-meter breast at the 2015 FINA World Junior Championships.

Gunes, who nearly took down Ruta Meilutyte’s vaunted meet record of 1:06.61 from 2013, won the finale in 1:06.77.

Meet organizers definitely understood just how successful Gunes has been this week as they immediately played Girl on Fire by Alicia Keys after her win.
