World record at the starts of the second day at the Swim Cup

After a successful first day at the Swim Cup, the second day started with a lot of excitement and sensation.

World record
The first session of the day started with the 400 meter medley. The Serbian Anja Crevar swam the fastest time in 4:52.49.

In the fifth heat of the men 200 meter backstroke Paralympic swimmer Olivier van de Voort was active. He swam 2:07.06, which was good enough for a new world record!

Dutch top swimmers
After some of the Dutch top swimmers were active yesterday it was the same today. Marrit Steenbergen recorded 2:01.41 at the 200 meter freestyle. The following heat it was Robin Neumann who swam the limit for the European Championship 2016 in London. She swam a time of 1:58.51.

Sebastiaan Verschuren and Maarten Brzoskowski were both active in the 100 meter freestyle. Verschuren swam a time of 48:65. Brzoskowski did the 100 meter in 50:20. Both of them are participating tonight in the semi-finals.

At the end of the afternoon session there was a record attempt. The Paralympic swimmers Cleo Keijzer, Lisa den Braber, Chantalle Zijderveld and Manon Vermarien made an attempt to record a new national record. They recorded a new national record with the time of 5:15.83.

Looking forward to the evening session
In the evening there will be numerous races. The semi-finals of the 100 meter freestyle is one to look forward to. Sebastiaan Verschuren will attempt to improve his time of the afternoon session to reach the limit for the Olympic. Furthermore the semi-finals of the 200 meter freestyle woman is scheduled. In that race Femke Heemskerk, Robin Neumann, Esmee Vermeulen and Marrit Steenbergen will compete for a staring ticket at the finals.

Tickets are still available
At the cash desk there are still tickets available for the evening session. For the evening many important (semi-) finals are scheduled. Enough reason to come and visit the Pieter van den Hoogenband swimming stadium. Not able to visit the stadium, you can follow us here and at the live twitteraccount.
