Campbell sets 100-meter world short-course record

ADELAIDE, Australia — Cate Campbell set a world short-course record with a time of 50.25 seconds in the 100-meter freestyle at the Australian short-course championships on Thursday.

Campbell took .033 seconds off the previous mark set by Sarah Sjostrom of Sweden in Eindhoven, Netherlands, in August.

She powered to win ahead of sister Bronte Campbell (52.01) and Emma McKeon (52.25), her Olympic gold medal relay teammates.
