The morning sessions featured eight heats. Daniil Pakhomov of St. Petersburg set a national junior record in the 200m butterfly event. In yesterday’s semifinal, he beat a two-year-long national junior record in the 100m individual medley. The final saw the swimmer break his own record that he had set in the morning. Two other national junior records were set by Arina Openysheva in the 200m freestyle and Roman Larin in the 200m backstroke. Arina achieved a junior record in the 400m freestyle event earlier on the third competition day of the national tournament. Another hero of the day, Svetlana Chimrova, broke a national record in the 100m butterfly. 18 swimmers in total met the qualifying time standard.
