TOKYO: Japan’s Aya Terakawa clocked the world’s second fastest time of the season to win the women’s 100 metres backstroke at the Japan Open Swimming Championships. The world 50m silver-medallist, who set a new Japanese record at the national championships in April to qualify for the Olympics, improved on it with a time of 59.08 seconds. “I’m happy because I hadn’t expected to swim a personal best,” said Terakawa.
