24-year-old Arno Kamminga of the Netherlands has a difficult time not breaking a national record when racing. On day 1 of the 2020 Antwerp Diamond Race, he took the 100m breast Dutch mark down to 58.52 in the morning heats before slashing another .09 off the standard to land at 58.43 in the final. That outing made Kamminga, the two-time 2019 European Short Course Champion, the 3rd fastest performer all-time. Now Kamminga has moved on to the 200m breast here in Belgium, logging another new personal best and national record in this morning’s heats.

24-year-old Arno Kamminga keeps lowering the bar big time when it comes to both his own personal best, as well as the Dutch national record, in the men’s 100m breaststroke. While competing on day 1 heats of the 2020 Antwerp Diamond Race, the two-time 2019 European Short Course Champion fired off a huge 58.52 to easily take the top seed and further demonstrate he is not one to be counted out for a medal at this summer’s Olympics.
