Siobhan Haughey wins!
Two-times Olympic medalist Haughey shaved 0.12 seconds off Sarah Sjostrom's mark to win gold in 1:50.31 at the short course world championships.
This is what Siobhan Haughey had to say regarding her new WR
"I knew I was close to the world record, I got close recently a few times and everyone around me kept telling me I could do it. I just tried not to think about that as all I wanted to do is really focus on my race plan; how I was going to swim well. I think that was the right thing to do, not think too much about the record, just focus on what I have to do."
