Kanako Watanabe rewrote her Japanese record in the women’s 200-meter individual medley on Friday, the fourth day of the National Swimming Championships.

Winner of the 50 and 100 breaststroke titles here, Watanabe shaved 0.77 second off her previous mark to win the 200 medley in 2 minutes, 9.81 seconds at Tatsumi International Swimming Center. Her time met the necessary standard to compete at this summer’s FINA World Aquatics Championships.
