In the 100-fly event at the World Aquatics Championships in Doha, Germany’s Angelina Kohler made history by winning gold with a time of 56.28 seconds. This was the first gold medal for a German woman at the championships since 2009 and marked a significant achievement for the country.
Kohler had already set a German record during the prelims with a time of 56.11 seconds, which was quicker than her previous international marks. While she didn’t maintain that speed in the finals, she still had an impressive time and finished ahead of American Claire Curzan and Sweden’s Louise Hansson.
Curzan finished with the silver medal at 56.61 seconds, while Hansson secured third place with a time of 56.94 seconds. Despite her slower performance in the finals, Kohler was still well ahead of the competition and should be proud of her achievements at these championships.
