The 18-year-old, who is representing the San Francisco-based Cali Condors in the competition, finished second with a time of 1 minute, 49.89 seconds, behind American Tom Shields of the LA Current (1:49.02).
Wang’s two previous national records — 1:50.79 and 1:50.14 — were also set in Budapest, on the league’s opening day on Oct. 17 and on Tuesday last week.
Wang’s coach, Huang Chih-yung, said that the strategy in Monday’s race was for Wang to stay close to Shields the entire race, and he praised the young Taiwanese for his accomplishment.
