Lilly King was dominant in the finals of the women’s 100 breast in the Pro Swim Series in Atlanta this weekend, jumping to second in the 2017 world rankings.
King finished with a final time of 1:06:20 on Sunday to jump up in the rankings.
King’s mark put her more than a full second ahead of the second place finisher in Atlanta, who had a final time of 1:07:95.
She now only trails Russia’s Yulia Efimova in the 2017 women’s 100 breast world rankings. Efimova clocked a 1:05:90 earlier this year.
King beat Efimova last year at the Olympics, and their heated battle was what sparked the infamous “finger wag” incident in Rio.
