Tatjana Schoenmaker Wins Gold for South Africa, Breaks World Record

South Africa strikes gold at the Tokyo Olympics, as Tatjana Schoenmaker won the women’s 200-meter breaststroke, dominating the competition as she went on to break an 8-year-old world record with a time of 2 minutes, 18.95 seconds.

A very surreal experience for the 24-year-old.

Tatjana Schoenmaker in a post-race conference expressed gladness for winning the medals, she said “I feel like it really hasn’t sunk in yet. We were even saying before the medals, like, did we just swim? (laughs) The whole process went really quick. So, yeah, I feel I was very excited to finally also finish my individual races and I’m excited to go home and celebrate just being at the Olympics with my family and stuff,”

“And I think it will kick in when I get home, probably I don’t know if it should be kicking in now, because if I was crying that much when I’m half there and half not, I just can’t imagine.”

This is the second medal for Tatjana Schoenmaker at the Tokyo Olympics, after coming second in the 100-meter breaststroke race, three days ago.
