Day two of the 2022 World Championships in Budapest will start off with heats of the men and women’s 100 back, the women’s 100 breast, and the men’s 200 free.

The women’s 100 back is one of the most anticipated events of the morning. It will set up a showdown in finals between current world record holder Kaylee McKeown of Australia and USA’s Regan Smith, the former world record holder. This is their first duel since the Tokyo Olympics where McKeown took home the gold. Olympic silver medalist Kylie Masse of Canada is seeded 2nd.

With the absence of Tokyo Olympic gold and silver medalists Evgeny Rylov and Kliment Kolesnikov of Russia, the men’s 100 back is led by USA’s Ryan Murphy, the world record holder, and his teammate Hunter Armstrong. Italy’s Thomas Ceccon is ranked closely behind, though, as is defending world champion Jiayu Xu of China.

The session will conclude with the women’s 1500 free where it is always a treat to see distance queen Katie Ledecky of the United States in her element as the top seed. She will swim in a separate heat from 2nd seed Simona Quadarella of Italy, the defending world champion, who has yet to swim at this meet. She scratched the 400 free earlier to focus on the 1500 free.
