Swimmer Tes Schouten has also improved her Dutch record in the 100 meter breaststroke in Eindhoven. The 22-year-old from South Holland clocked 1.05.71 in the series, with which she dived two tenths of a second under the time she set in France last month (1.05.92).
Schouten also improved her national record in the 200 meter breaststroke on Friday at the Eindhoven Qualification Meet. She won the final in 2:22.21, more than a second faster than last month in Saint-Germain-en-Laye, France.
The breaststroke specialist has already met the limits for both the 100 and 200 meters for the World Cup in Fukuoka next summer and the Olympic Games in Paris next year.
