The third of four stops at the 2021 FINA World Cup occurred from October 21-23 and featuted an electric 100 free-form execution from Australia’s Kyle Chalmers. Chalmers indented a 45.03 to take gold in the occasion which denoted another individual best and Australian record, refining his own 45.54 from 2018 and Matthew Abood’s 45.64 from 2009.
Chalmers’ swim made him the third quickest 100 freestyler in history behind Amaury Leveaux who holds the record at 44.94 from back in 2009 and Vlad Morozov who swam a 44.95 in 2018. That makes Chalmers simply 0.04 seconds from joining the super-first class sub-44 second club and just 0.10 seconds from establishing another worldwide best.
