On Monday, Angelina Kohler made history at the World Aquatics Championships in Doha by winning gold in the women’s 100-fly with a time of 56.28 seconds. This was Germany’s first gold medal at the World Championships since 2009 and marked a significant achievement for the country.
During the preliminaries, Kohler set a German record with a time of 56.11 seconds, which was a second quicker than her previous international marks. However, she didn’t maintain that speed during the finals but still had an impressive time. Despite finishing slower than she did in the preliminaries, Kohler was still well ahead of the competition. American Claire Curzan finished with the silver medal at 56.61 seconds, while Sweden’s Louise Hansson secured third place with a time of 56.94 seconds.
Kohler’s victory marked a considerable achievement for Germany, especially with several other bronze medals being awarded to German athletes throughout different events. Her success showed that Germany is still a force to be reckoned with in international swimming competitions and will continue to push for more medals in future events.
