Tatjana Schoenmaker won her first FINA Swimming World Cup gold medal at Tokyo’s Tatsumi International Swimming Centre yesterday.

Schoenmaker bagged the gold in the 200m breaststroke with an impressive new World Cup record time of 2:22.35.

The silver and bronze in the race went to Japan’s Reona Aoki and Spain’s Jessica Vall Montero respectively in 2:24.33 and 2:25.32.
