Angelina Kohler Sets Record with 100 Fly Gold Win

Angelina Kohler made history at the World Aquatics Championships in Doha by setting a German record in the 100-fly event during the semifinals. She didn’t maintain that speed during the finals but still had an impressive time.

During the finals on Monday, Kohler won gold in the women’s 100-fly with a time of 56.28 seconds. This marked the first gold medal for a German woman at the World Championships since 2009. Not only was this a historic moment, but she also set the pace in the prelims with a time of 56.11 seconds, which was a German record and a second quicker than her previous international marks.

Despite a slower time in the finals, Kohler was still well ahead of the competition. American Claire Curzan finished with the silver medal at 56.61 seconds, while Sweden’s Louise Hansson secured third place with a time of 56.94 seconds. Ultimately, the victory marked a considerable achievement for Germany, especially with several other bronze medals being awarded to German athletes throughout different events.
