Another day, ANOTHER WORLD RECORD for van der Burgh and blueseventy!!

Cameron van der Burgh was once more the swimmer to watch in this FINA/ARENA Swimming World Cup. On the first day of the sixth leg competition, in Stockholm, Sweden, the South African star in none other than a blueseventy nero comp swimskin, bettered his own 50m breaststroke world record, touching in 25.94 seconds. On Nov. 8 in Moscow (the previous meet of the circuit), Burgh had clocked in at 26.08 and now becomes the first swimmer ever to swim the event in under 26 seconds. It was the fifth world record of this World Cup, and the third for van der Burgh (he also set the 100m breaststroke world record in Moscow). Furthermore, this performance gave him 1073 points, the best men’s total of the first day of competition.
