Marcin Szarpak Goes 3 for 3 at the IISA 4th World Championship
After setting two world and championship records in the Ice Kilometer and 500m freestyle events on Days 1 and 2, 21-year-old Marcin Szarpak of Poland won his third event of the IISA World Championship with a new world and championship record of 2:45:77. He dominated the competition in Głogów, Poland over the world’s best at the International Ice Swimming Association World Championship and proven himself a force to behold over the near and distant future.
But the 250m freestyle was his closest race; teammate Jakub Muszyński was only 4 tenths of a second behind in very tight race, 2:45:77 to 2:46:19. Kubkowski had also pushed him the Ice Kilometer so their rivalry remains fierce.
