Swedish swimming star Sarah Sjöström on Saturday emphasized her sovereignty over the women’s short distances. At the World Championships in Budapest, she swam to gold in the 50 meters freestyle. On Friday, she won the 50-meter butterfly for the fourth World Cup in a row. On the other hand, she was not defending world champion in the 50 meter freestyle after she had to settle for silver at the 2019 World Cup. On Saturday, she won in the super time of 23.98 seconds, which was 0.2 seconds faster than Polish Katarzyna Wasick. Australian Meg Harris and Erika Brown from the USA shared the bronze. – It’s great, I’m super happy. It’s cool to be under 24 seconds again and fun to win here, Sjöström says to SVT according to the news agency TT. It was the 20th World Cup medal of her career for 28-year-old Sarah Sjöström, who won her first World Cup medal in 2009, when she won gold in the 100 meter butterfly in Rome. Ten World Cup golds have been won, and in addition she has won silver seven times and bronze three times.
