Jul 29, 2013  - Fabio Terrone

Ruta Meilutyte of Lithuania broke the European Record in the women’s 100 metres breaststroke Monday, the second day of competition at the FINA World Championships.

In the morning's heats Meilutyte sliced 68-hundredths of a second off her own European mark of 1:05.20, set on June 8 this year in Monte Carlo.

The new record of 1:04.52 beat the Championships mark of US Rebecca Soni (Rome 2009).
