POZNAN, Poland. THE European Junior Championships kicked off with a seriously strong outing in the women's 50-meter breaststroke.
Ukraine's Viktoriya Solntseva popped a meet-record time in the women's 50-meter breaststroke with a 30.83 for the win. That swim smashed the previous record set by Russia's Yuliya Efimova (31.45) back in 2007. That performance shot Solntseva to a seventh-ranked in the world.
