The Japanese Championship for short waterways for swimming in a 25-meter pool has begun, and the men's 200-meter butterfly was won by Tomoru Honda, a silver medalist at the Tokyo Olympics.

The FINA World Swimming Championships will be held on the 16th and 17th at the Tatsumi International Swimming Championships in Tokyo, which will also serve as the representative selection for the FINA World Swimming Championships in December.



Among the events held on the first day, Honda and Daiya Seto, the representative of the Tokyo tournament and the Japanese record holder for this event, participated in the men's 200m butterfly.



At the beginning of the final, Honda and Seto were almost side by side.



After that, Honda escaped in the second half and finished in the lead battle with Seto.



The time was 1 minute 49 seconds 84.

Honda "If you don't win here, you won't win for the rest of your life."

Tomoru Honda, who won the championship, said, "Since Seto is also in the individual medley today, I thought I couldn't win for the rest of my life and swam desperately. I didn't want to lose in my specialty. "I was talking with a fulfilling expression.

In the men's 1500m freestyle, Shogo Takeda, who could not participate in the Olympics because he did not reach the standard dispatch record of the Tokyo Games representative in 0 seconds 64, won the new record in Japan.



Takeda made an aggressive swim from the beginning, pulled forward and pulled away from the rest, and finished as it was.



The time was 14 minutes 30 seconds 88, which shortened the Japanese record by 0 seconds 76 seconds.



In addition, Yuya Japan won the men's 100-meter breaststroke by setting a new Japanese record of 55.77 seconds, and Katsuhiro Matsumoto won the men's 200m freestyle at 1: 42.33 seconds.
