    Background: ONE OF THE HIGHLIGHTS OF THE FIRS DAY'S EVENTS IN THE INTERNATIONAL SWIMMING CONTEST BETWEEN BRITAIN AND RUSSIA AT BLACKPOOL ON FRIDAY WAS THE 220 YARDS BREASTSTROKE RACE FOR MEN.

    GEORGI PROKOPENKO, THE 27 YEAR-OLD RUSSIAN WHO RECENTLY BROKE THE WORLD RECORD FOR THE 100 METRES BREASTSTROKE, ADDED A WORLD RECORD FOR THE 200 YARDS TO HIS LIST LAST NIGHT.

    THE RACE WAS VIRTUALLY A SOLO PERFORMANCE AND BROUGHT ENCOURAGING CHEERS FROM THE LARGE CROWD PRESENT, AS IT BECAME OBVIOUS THAT PROKOPENKO WOULD ESTABLISH A NEW RECORD.

    HE FORGED HOME TEN YARDS AHEAD OF HIS TEAM MATE FUNIKOV TO SET A RECORD OF 2 MINUTES 31.4 SECONDS. N. NICHOLSON CAME IN THIRD FOR BRITAIN.
