Photos: Soni Wins Gold, Sets World Record In 200 Breaststroke
LONDON — Rebecca Soni of the United States set another world record to defend her 200-meter breaststroke title at the London Olympics on Thursday. It was the sixth world record in the pool at these Games.
She broke into a big smile when she saw the time, racing the clock more than she was anyone in the water. Japan’s Satomi Suzuki took silver, more than a second behind at 2:20.72, while Russia’s Yulia Efimova claimed bronze in 2:20.92.
“I’m so happy,” Soni said. “I can’t believe I did it.”
