TOKYO, Japan (WEHT) – Lilly King’s attempt at history did not go as planned. The defending 100 meter breaststroke champion was not able to go-back-to back and finished third in the finals of the women’s 100-meter breaststroke.
17-year old Lydia Jacoby finished first. Tatjana Schoenmaker finished second.
King now turns her attention to the 200 meter breaststroke. Those prelims begin on Wednesday.
