Sweden's Michelle Coleman was the fastest in the 50m free in 24.56, while Australians Cate Campbell and Maddy Gough shone in the 100m free (53.00) and 400m free ( 4:10.36). Spanish legend Mireia Belmonte won the 800m free in 8:31.42 and Slovenia's Tjasa Vozel established herself in the 200m breast in 2:26.52. Dutch Ranomi Kromowidjojo touched home in 25.63 in the 50m fly for the gold.
