Regan Smith sets new World Junior Record! | Women's 100m Back A Final | 2019 TYR PSS Bloomington

U.S. National Team member Regan Smith set the world junior record in the 100m backstroke Sunday at the TYR Pro Swim Series at Bloomington, turning in a time of 58.82. It was her third win of the meet and the fourth-fastest time in the world this year.

Isabelle Stadden and Lisa Bratton were second and third, respectively.

The 100 back was one of three races for Smith Sunday, who also finished second in the 100m fly and 15th in the "B" final of the 50m free.

"It was a similar setup to last night, tight turnaround between the 50 (fly) and the 200 (back), so I kinda knew what I was getting myself into for the second night," Smith said. "I was super surprised. I felt way better than the morning. It felt super smooth. It was really great, best-case scenario definitely."
