- Updated: October 17, 2009
Swedish swim star Therese Alshammar kept the crowd cheering as she turned on the speed to set a new world record in the 100 metres individual medley, during the early heats session on the final day of the FINA/Arena Swimming World Cup at the Kings Park Aquatic Centre on Saturday.
Alshammar clocked 58.51 secs to dip in under the previous short course world best of 58.54 held by Australia’s Emily Seebohm, set in August this year.
ÔÇ£I felt good going into the race off the back of wins in the 50 metres freestyle and 100 metres butterfly last night,ÔÇØ said a delighted Alshammar, who also wins US$10┬á000 from world aquatics body FINA.
ÔÇ£I have been working really hard on my turns and butterfly kicks during training and it all came together for me today.ÔÇØ
