A pair of Americans followed the mark, with Coleman Stewart affects 22.35 and Justin Ress23.42.

The women’s 200m field was packed to see the Aussie Olympian Madi Wilson 4 way down for tonight’s finale. The 28-year-old Marion Swimming Club ace produced a fast 1:54.32 to represent the only sub-1:55 swim.
Wilson had a lifetime best of 1:52.55 just last summer, and will need to get close to that to fend off the likes of American icon Ledecky and the Hong Kong Olympic champion. Siobhan Haughey. Ledecky took the #2 seed with a slow 1:55.52 while Haughey was also good with a morning swim of 1:56.15.
Haughey holds the world record in 1:50.31 he won on his way to winning the 2021 junior world title last year. After suffering an ankle injury last May, Haughey competed at home in the Hong Kong Long Course Open but this was his first time at an international tournament this year.
