Unknown Stewart breaks world record in 34 strokes

Coleman Stewart has no Wikipedia entry. Nor could he get into the final of the American trails to attend the Tokyo Games. Came to the International Swimming League (ISL), which has finished in its first stop in Naples this Sunday, without excessive aspirations with the team captained by Caeleb Dressel, the Cali Condors. And he comes out of it with a brilliant world record in the 100 backstroke in a perfect run.

Stewart nailed all four underwater, reaching 15 meters allowed, and only used 34 strokes to stop the timer at 48.33. He smashed the previous record also achieved in the ISL in November 2020 by the Russian prodigy Kliment Kolesnikov with 48.58 in 44 strokes, ten more. Stewart’s dive was unimaginable.

“It still doesn’t feel real. All the credit goes to my family, my coaches and friends who have believed in me every step of the way “The 23-year-old swimmer later highlighted, surprised when he saw the triumph and the world record. The son of swimmers, Stewart has been an outstanding swimmer in college, but it has always been difficult for him to transfer those successes to national competitions. Now he faces a new stage catapulted by the ISL.

Three Spaniards in another Dressel recital

Dressel scored four wins on his return after the Tokyo Games, where he won four gold medals. The American noted the 50 butterfly, 100 free and the relay 4×100 free and 4×100 styles. The competition also featured the participation of three Spanish women, from CN Sant Andreu, Jessica Vall, Lidón Muñoz and Africa Zamorano, all of them participated in the Tokyo Games. The Swedish Sarah Sjostrom was the winner with 60.5 points, who obtained a bonus of about 7,500 euros.
