Kira Toussaint has equaled her own world record in the 50 meter backstroke in competitions on the short track in the Amsterdam Sloterparkbad on Friday.

Just like last month, the Amstelveense tapped in Budapest in 25.60 seconds.

Just over a month ago, 26-year-old Toussaint improved the world top time that had been held by the Brazilian Etiene Medeiros since 2014 during the International Swimmings League in Budapest.

"This gives confidence and confirms that Budapest was no outlier," said the backstroke specialist.

"Of course I would have loved to swim one hundredth faster, but you can't have everything. I did three races today and also swam 25.62 and 25.64. Each time there was still room for improvement."

Two weeks ago Toussaint also set two own Dutch records on the long track at the Rotterdam Qualification Meet.

In the 50 meter backstroke she came to 27.37 and on the 100 meter backstroke she swam 58.91.

In the matches in the Amsterdam Sloterparkbad, Luc Kroon improved the Dutch record in the 400 meter freestyle with 3.39.84.

In a direct fight with record holder Maarten Brzoskowski, the nineteen-year-old Volendammer was seven hundredths faster than the old top tide.

"I did not expect it and it was good that Maarten was next to me. That made me a bit more eager to win the race", Kroon said.

"That I also swim my second Dutch record with the seniors, is of course great."
