Chinese Swimmer Tang Qianting Sets National Record, Wins Gold at Doha World Swimming Championships

Beijing, February 14th (China News Service) – Tang Qianting of China emerged as the victor in the women’s 100-meter breaststroke final at the Doha World Swimming Championships, breaking a national record that had remained unchallenged for over a decade.

Tang’s incredible performance saw her finishing the race in just 1 minute and 5.27 seconds, which not only secured her first gold medal in a World Championship event but also shattered the national record set by Ji Liping in 2009.

Having dominated the preliminaries and semi-finals, Tang Qianting’s triumph in the finals was a gratifying moment both for her and her country. She said in an emotional post-race interview, “Last year’s condition was not very ideal. I didn’t expect that I would be able to swim so confidently in the first game this year.”

She was not the only Chinese swimmer to make waves at the event, as Li Bingjie clinched the silver medal in the women’s 1500m freestyle final. Despite her exceptional performance, Li Bingjie expressed disappointment with her results, stating that she believes her future ability is stronger at this stage than at the Fukuoka World Swimming Championships.

Meanwhile, in the men’s 200-meter freestyle final, South Korea’s Huang Xuanyu continued his remarkable streak at the World Championships, claiming gold with a time of 1 minute and 44.75 seconds.

As the competition draws on, spectators eagerly await more thrilling races at the Doha World Swimming Championships, including the finals of men’s 800m freestyle, women’s 200m freestyle, men’s 200m butterfly, men’s 50m breaststroke, and mixed 4x100m medley relay scheduled for the 14th local time.
