China's Zhang Yufei won her first world title in the women's 100 meters butterfly at the World Aquatics Championships here on Monday, reported Xinhua.
Zhang, 200m butterfly champion and 100m silver medalist at the Tokyo Olympics, clocked 56.12 seconds to earn China the second gold in swimming at the Fukuoka worlds, only minutes after Qin Haiyang triumphed in the men's 100m breaststroke.
"I feel wonderful. It is amazing," said 25-year-old Zhang, who collected seven bronze medals in her four previous worlds.
Canada's Margaret MacNeil finished second in 56.45 seconds, and defending champion Torri Huske of the United States was third in 56.61.
