Taiwanese swimmer Wang Kuan-hung broke national records with his performance in the men’s 50-meter and 100-meter butterfly races at the International Swimming League (ISL) matches in Hungary. At the age of 18, Wang came in fourth place in the men’s 100-meter short course butterfly at 50.80 seconds on Tuesday.

Wang is the first Taiwanese to join the ISL. That’s after he was given the ticket to take part in the 200-meter short course butterfly competition at the Tokyo Olympics slated for next year.

Wang’s time of 1:50.79 secs in the 200-meter short course butterfly beat the previous record held by Japanese swimmer Seto Daiya at the FINA Swimming World Cup in 2012.     

Wang also broke the previous World Junior record in the 200-meter short course butterfly at the ISL on October 18.     [FULL  STORY]
