World Aquatic Championships records broken on big night, Seebohm wins bronze

FORMER world champion Emily Seebohm has climbed out of the “black hole’’ she was in at the Rio Olympics and back onto the medal podium at the world championships in Budapest.

It took a world record of 58.10 sec from Canadian Kylie Masse to deny Seebohm a shot at a second world title last night, one of three world records set during the session.

Masse, 21, was the bronze medallist in Rio but has made a big step forward this year to take down one of the few remaining supersuit world records in the women’s program, Gemma Spofforth’s 2009 benchmark of 52.12 sec.

Seebohm too has pressed that record at her best but last night the 25-year-old Queenslander was happy just to be on the podium.
