Atherton clocked a 28.00, shaving a couple tenths off her previous best of 28.32 to claim the new Junior World Record and the Championship Record. Prior to this morning’s event, the Junior World Record held by Fa’amausili was also the Championship Record. She had set the mark at 28.14 in 2013.
Atherton now owns the Junior World Record mark in both the 50 and 100 back. That 28-flat ranks her as the 10th fastest swimmer in the world for 2015. She’s also the 3rd fastest Australian this year behind backstroke star Emily Seebohm (27.47) and Madison Wilson (27.83).
