Chinese Teenager Pan Zhanle Smashes the 100m Freestyle World Record at World Championships

Breaking the World Record: 19-Year-Old Pan Zhanle’s Impressive Achievements in International Swimming

Nineteen-year-old Chinese swimmer Pan Zhanle has set a new world record in the 100 meter freestyle. He broke the previous record of 46.86 seconds, set by someone else, and soared to the lead in the World Championships in Doha. Pan told reporters that breaking the world record just came naturally, and now his goal is to swim even faster.

At only 16 years old, Zhang helped China ease to 4x100m relay gold with a time of 3:27.58 seconds, beating Italy and the US into silver and bronze. Notably, Zhang broke the 50 second barrier in the discipline with a time of 48.62 seconds – though only the leadoff leg of a relay counts towards official record times.

This accomplishment is all the more impressive when one considers that Pan had been feeling under the weather before the race. Qin Haiyan set the current 200m breaststroke record at last year’s World Championships. These are just some of the accomplishments that have made China a dominant force in international swimming.
