In an exciting race at Australia's Olympic swimming trials, Ariarne Titmus shattered the world record in the 200-meter freestyle, SSP reported. She outperformed her compatriot and teammate, Mollie O'Callaghan, who was the previous record holder, making it a remarkable feat for both swimmers.

Titmus, who currently holds the Olympic titles in the 200m and 400m freestyle events, clocked an impressive time of 1:52.23 at the trials held in Brisbane. This time was slightly faster than O'Callaghan's previous world record of 1:52.85, which she achieved at last year's world championships.

Notably, Titmus defeated O'Callaghan by a small margin, with the latter posting a time of 1:52.48, which also surpassed her previous record. Reflecting on the outstanding performances, Titmus expressed her amazement, stating, "Looking at the results, that's unbelievable. I'm just happy to finally produce a swim in the 200m that I feel like my training reflects. The field that we have is why we're swimming so fast; we push each other every day."

The talented duo, Titmus and O'Callaghan, both members of the St Peters Western Swim Club under the mentorship of coach Dean Boxall, will continue their thrilling rivalry at this year's Olympics in Paris, commencing on July 26.

It is worth noting that O'Callaghan secured the 100m and 200m freestyle titles at last year's world championships in Fukuoka, Japan, finishing ahead of Titmus in the 200m final.

Following Titmus's outstanding performance on Wednesday, she is anticipated to hold both the 200m and 400m freestyle world records, pending official ratification. The feat further solidifies her position as a dominant force in the world of swimming.
