Rebecca Soni Wins Gold!

USC Trojan Rebecca Soni set another world record on her way to defending her gold medal in the 200-meter breaststroke today.

Soni swam 2 minutes, 19.59 seconds to improve on her previous world record she set on Wednesday in the semis by .41 seconds. That is back-to-back Olympic gold medals for Soni in the 200m breaststroke!

Soni said after the race,

“I’m so happy. I can’t believe I did it.”

“It’s been my goal since I was a little kid to go under 2:20. That’s when my coach told me you’re going to be the first woman to go under 2:19. I’ve been chasing it ever since. I’m just so happy.”

Fight On!
