The 2024 World Aquatic Championships in Doha kicked off with China leading the medal table after Day 1 of competition. In the women’s 400 freestyle, Li Bingjie from China won silver, while the Chinese men’s 4×100 free relay team captured gold, with Pan Zhanle setting a new World Record.

South Korea, the Netherlands, and New Zealand each have one gold medal apiece. The Netherlands upset the Australians by winning the women’s 4×100 free relay, while New Zealand’s Erika Fairweather set a new national record in the women’s 400 freestyle.

As of Day 1, Australia and Germany are tied for second place on the medal table with two medals each. Australia won silver and bronze in various events, while Germany took home silver and bronze as well. Canada also has one bronze medal to show for their efforts on Day 1.

The United States is currently in fourth place on the medal table with just one bronze medal so far. However, they still have plenty of time to catch up to the leaders and make a strong showing at this year’s championships.
