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 the first gold medal for a German woman at the World Championships since 2009, and it was a significant achievement for the country.
Kohler set a German record in the semifinals with her impressive performance, but she didn’t maintain that speed during the finals. However, she still had an impressive time and finished 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.
Despite her slower time in the finals, Kohler was still well ahead of her competitors. Her victory marked a considerable achievement for Germany, especially as several other bronze medals were awarded to German athletes throughout different events at the championships.
