Zac Stubblety-Cook of Australia has set a new Olympic record in the men’s 200-meter breaststroke final, touching first in 2:06.38 for gold.
The race was close throughout, with Arno Kamminga of the Netherlands swimming above World Record pace for a good chunk. At the 150, it was looking like Kamminga had gold locked in, followed by James Wilby of Great Britain. But Stubblety-Cook had other ideas. He pushed forward to out-touch his competitors.
Kamminga took silver in 2:07.01, and Matti Mattson of Finland wins bronze with a 2:07.13, setting a new Finnish record by 1.1 seconds.
