Annie Lazor sets fastest time in the world this year! | Women's 200m Breast A Final | 2019 TYR PSS

After two second-place finishes behind Olympic and World Champion Lilly King this weekend, Annie Lazor made Sunday night’s final of the 200 breaststroke a one-woman race – winning in the fastest time in the world this year.

Lazor’s winning mark of 2:20.77 eclipsed the year’s previous best time set last weekend by Yuliya Efimova at the FINA Champions Series in Hungary by almost 2 seconds. Emily Escobedo was second while King was a very close third. Lazor’s time set a new TYR Pro Swim Series record.

“It still hasn't really sunk it yet I guess," Lazor said. "I am shaved, and I rested probably about a week or so ago, so I knew I was going to go faster than I did in previous (TYR) Pro Swims. I was hoping I could be 2:21 high, 2:21 mid. I'd be super happy with that. It's kind of more of my goal to be 2:20 by the end of the summer"
