2017 Mare Nostrum - BarcelonaJune 13-14, 2017
Club Natació Sant Andreu
To say that Sarah Sjöström of Sweden has been on fire in 2017 -- particularly at the 2017 Mare Nostrum -- is an understatement. Sjöström is already the world record holder in the 50m butterfly (24.43) and 100m butterfly (55.48), but she seriously threatened the 50m and 100m freestyle world records at the Mare Nostrum in Barcelona with a 23.96 in the 50 (WR is 23.73 - Britta Steffen, 2009) and a 52.28 in the 100 (WR is 52.06 - Cate Campbell, 2016).
In the interview above -- Sjöström talks about her success in 2017, the tweaks she has made to her technique to become a sprint freestyle powerhouse, and why she has black eye. Enjoy!
