Nicholas Santos had broken the super-suited swimming world record of 21.80 from 2009 back in October in 21.75, and backs it up here as he swims the 3rd fastest time ever. That old record belonged to German athlete Steffen Deibler.

After also going 21.96 in the semi-finals, Santos now owns three of the fastest six butterfly swims in history, while Le Clos joins him as the only men ever to break 22 seconds more than once. Le Clos owns five of the top-10 swims ever.
