South African swimmer Tatjana Schoenmaker finished sixth the final of the women’s 100m breaststroke at the FINA World Championships in Gwangju, South Korea on Tuesday.

Schoenmaker posted a time of 1:06.60 but it was not enough to claim a medal

USA’s Lilly King won gold in a time of 1:04.93, Russia’s Yuliya Efimova silver in 1:05.49 and Italy’s Martina Carraro bronze in 1:06.36.

Japan’s Reona Aoki finished fourth in 1:06.40 and China’s Yu Jingyao fifth in 1:06.56.

Earlier this week, the 22-year-old Schoenmaker finished second in her semi-final to qualify fifth fastest overall in a time of 1:06.61.

Schoenmaker will also compete in the 200m breaststroke event later this week.
