Pan Zhanle (19), the ‘divine’ of Chinese swimming, broke the long course (50m) men’s 100m freestyle Asian record held by Hwang Seon-woo (19, Gangwon Provincial Office).
Pan Zhanle captured the touchpad with a record of 47.22 seconds in the men’s 100m freestyle final at the China Swimming Championships held in Hangzhou, China on the 1st.
It is a new Asian record, 0.34 seconds off the 47 seconds 56 Hwang Seon-woo recorded at the 2020 Tokyo Olympics held in 2021.
Panjanler, who set a new Asian record of 45.77 seconds at the Short Course (25m) World Championships held in Melbourne, Australia last December, holds both the 100m freestyle long course and short course Asian records.
In an interview with China’s Xinhua News Agency, Panzanler said, “The record came out better than I expected. Even during training, the record was always around 47.50.” “I want to become the world’s best swimmer and compete with David Popovich (Romania). “he said.크크크벳

Pan Zhanle, who showed a steep rise, emerged as a competitor to Hwang Seon-woo, who is aiming for a gold medal in the 100m freestyle at the Hangzhou Asian Games.
In the 200m freestyle, Hwang Sun-woo is far ahead.
Hwang Seon-woo’s personal best in the long course 200m freestyle is 1:44:47, set when she won the silver medal at the World Championships last year. Panzanler’s personal best is 1:48.53.
