Mac Neil broke his own world record | Jobs Vox


Maggie McNeil struck again.

On Friday, the 22-year-old London swimming legend competed in the 50m backstroke at the FINA World Swimming Championships, taking gold once again and setting a new world record time of 25.25 seconds.

In December 2021, McNeil set the world record for the first time in the 50m backstroke with a time of 25.27 seconds in Abu Dhabi. This year in Melbourne, Australia, he improved his time by 0.002 seconds

Mack Neal also took gold on Wednesday in the 50m butterfly, an event in which he holds the Canadian record. His time was 24.64 seconds, less than a quarter of a second off the world record for the race.

McNeal also medaled in the women’s 4×100 freestyle and 4×50 medley relay, giving her four berths from this year’s short course championships.

“I’m ecstatic. “I knew it was going to be tough to get the best time, but I just wanted to see the improvement and I’m glad I did,” said McNeil. “I’ve been learning so much from every swim I’ve done and I think tonight I was able to fix all those little mistakes.”

Mc Neal swam alongside Kyle Massey, who hails from La Salle, Ontario. Both have now won the same number of medals overall from the long and short course world championships. With 15 medals each, Massey and McNeil respectively have collected more than any other Canadian.

The short course world championship continues until Sunday.
