Larkin’s backstroke record

AUSTRALIAN swimmer Mitchell Larkin set a short-course world record in the 200-meter backstroke final at the national championships in Sydney yesterday.

Larkin’s time of 1 minute, 45.63 seconds was almost a half-second faster than the previous mark of 1:46.11 set by Russia’s Arkady Vyatchanin at the short-course world championships in 2009. Larkin won the 100- and 200-meter backstroke double at the world swimming championships in Kazan, Russia, in August this year.
