Until last week, it was the world record in the 100 free short-course on name of Australian Cate Campbell, who in november 2015 to 50,91 came.

Campbell ended Friday as the third in 51,75, still behind Kromowidjojo. Born in Groningen, swam in its home game to the second place in 51,19. Thus she continued in 0,05 seconds above her Dutch record of last week in Moscow.

Femke Heemskerk posted a time of 52,08 and thus became fourth, while Kim Bush as the seventh ended in 53,41.
