October 30, 2022 – Chinese swimmer Li Bingjie has smashed the women’s short course 400m freestyle world record on the first night of the 2022 Chinese Swimming Championships at the Beijing National Centre, in a pool equipped by Australia’s Anti Wave, based in Brisbane.
In Thursday’s landmark swim in Beijing, Li shaved more than two-and-a-half seconds off the four-year-old mark set by Australia’s rival Ariarne Titmus.
In preparation for the upcoming 16th FINA World Swimming Championships (25m) being held in Melbourne in December, Li clocked a time of 3:51.30, breaking the old world record of 3:53.92 set by double Olympic champion Titmus at the 2018 World Championships in the Chinese city of Hangzhou.

The pool in which Li swam was equipped with patented Maxi Racing Lanes and TrackStarts Blocks, Movable Bulkhead, EndWalls and Overflow Gratings from Anti Wave.
Anti Wave Global has equipped the Beijing National Training Centre since 2001, upgrading its fittings in 2015.
Commenting on her achievement, Li told China’s Xinhua news agency “I was surprised with my result.
“I have returned to the pool only for two months since I took a vacation after the FINA World Championships in Budapest.”
