Lily finished the swim in 2 minutes 19.92 seconds and won the silver. Her teammate Annie Ledger won bronze (2 minutes 20.84 seconds).

In the 100-meter breaststroke, the silver medalist Schoenmaker hinted at breaking the world record. She did it in the final. However, Lily King was ahead in the distance of 50 meters and 100 meters. But in the end she had to fall behind Schoenmaker. South Africa’s Penny Haynes won gold in the 100m and 200m breaststroke at the 1996 Atlanta Olympics. Schoenmaker became the first woman to win gold in swimming at the Olympics in 25 years.

This is the first world record in the individual swimming event at the Tokyo Olympics.
