Bahamas Arianna Vanderpool-Wallace surged to the top of the World Rankings in the 50 metre freestyle when she won that event at the Bolzano International Swim meet in Italy on Sunday. The two day meet which was contested in short course metres saw Vanderpool Wallace clocking a meet record of 23.93 to win convincingly over SwimMac Carolina teammate Madison Kennedy. That time equals the 23.93 she posted at the 2014 World Short Course Championships when she placed fifth in the final. It also betters the   previous World leading time of 24.14 set by Swede Sarah Sjostrom .

On Saturday she lowered the meet record in the metre freestyle to 52.69. She beat her previous season best of 52.98 to remain fourth in the World rankings. With Vanderpool’s chart topper in the 50 metre freestyle the Caribbean has two female swimmers on top of the global rankings as Jamaica’s Alia Atkinson leads the world in the 50 and 100 metre breaststroke events in the long course rankings
