Swimmer Petra Chocová has set a new Czech record in the women’s 100m breaststroke. Chocová, who is 28, shaved 42 hundredths of a second off a record she herself set last year, finishing in a time of 1:07:66 in heats at the European Swimming Championships in Berlin on Tuesday. The Czech will also be attempting to defend her title in the 50m breaststroke, which she won at the previous European Championships two years ago.
