-Gwangju FINA Worlds- Watanabe gunning for gold in 200m breaststroke

 

Watanabe Ippei is seeking to win a gold at the 2019 Gwangju FINA World Aquatics Championships.

 

The 22-year-old Japanese swimmer arrived in Gwangju on Wednesday.

 

In an interview with a Japanese newspaper, Ippei said he would like to set a new world record.

 

Ippei holds the world record in 200m breaststroke at 2:06.07 set during Tokyo Swimming Competition in January 2017.

 

He also has the Olympic record of 2:07.22 set in a semifinal during Rio Olympics in 2016. Ippei failed to keep his pace at the final, and settled for 6th at the time.
