Han Hits New Record

GELSENKIRCHEN, Germany -- For the second time this week, China's Han Xue broke her own short-course world record for the 50-meter breast-stroke Sunday.


Han clocked 30.77 seconds, breaking the 30.88-second mark she set just Wednesday in Glasgow.


Han's mark was the third record set at the two-day World Cup short-course meet. On Saturday, two-time Olympic champion Denis Pankratov, of Russia, broke the short-course world 200-meter butterfly record in 1 minute, 52.64 seconds, and Marcel Wouda of the Netherlands set the 400-meter individual medley mark, 4:05.59.
