ZHENGZHOU, China - Olympic champion Ye Shiwen won the women's 200m medley in 02:09.08 on Tuesday at the National Swimming Championships which was only 1.5 seconds slower than her London Olympic record.

The Olympic 200m and 400m medley champion showed her dominance in women's 200m medley final as she touched the wall first in 02:09.08, more than 2 seconds ahead of her nearest rival, Zhou Min from Shanghai, who finished second in 02:11.50, Zhang Wenqing of Shandong was the third in 02:11.73.

"I'm not in my best state, starting and turning round need to be improved, but the score is in accordance with expectation," said Ye.

"Coach reminds me that I'm a little fat, so I take part in many matches to lose weight although it will be very tired," said Ye.

Ye will participate in 100m and 200m freestyle, 200m backstroke, 200m and 400m medley at the National Championships.

In the women's 100m butterfly final, Olympic medalist Lu Ying won the title, and Olympic champion Jiao Liuyang and Liu Zige placed the second and the fourth.
