Marrit Steenbergen Enjoys Clear 100 Free Victory In Rotterdam


Marrit Steenbergen Continues Golden Form With 100 Free Victory In Rotterdam

Marrit Steenbergen made it three golds in as many days as she enjoyed a clear victory in the 100 free at the Rotterdam Qualification Meet.

Steenbergen won the 200 free on the opening day before adding the 100 fly on Friday as she continued the golden form that saw her win titles among seven medals at the European Championships.

On Saturday, the 22-year-old dominated the 100 free to stop the clock at 53.61, her third-best time of the season behind her 53.41 on the women’s 4×100 freestyle relay at the World Championships in Budapest and her season’s best of 53.24 en-route to the individual title in Rome.

The Dutch swimmer split 26.20/27.41 to enjoy a clear victory with Freya Anderson second in 54.71 as the pair replicated their one-two finish in the 200 free and 17-year-old Roos Vanotterdijk third in 55.19.

Tom Dean led the men’s 100 free prelims in 49.26 but he didn’t appear for the final with Sean Niewold taking the win after coming from sixth at halfway to finish in 49.29 courtesy of a 25.05 second 50.

Ed Mildred (49.45) and Renzo Tjon A Joe (49.59) completed the podium.

Jonathon Adam added the men’s 100 back to the 50 he won on Friday as he led home a Bath Performance Centre clean sweep in 53.97.

Thomas van Wanrooij won the men’s 100 free S13 in 53.62 with Liesette Bruinsma – who swims in the S11 classification – leading the way in the women’s race in 1:08.36.
