Bangladeshi swimmer Mahfuza Khatun Shila finished 61st among 74 participants in the 50m breaststroke event at the FINA World Swimming Championships in Barcelona on Saturday.
The Bangladesh Navy swimmer set a time of 35.63 seconds, 0.43 seconds better than her gold medal-winning performance at the eighth Bangladesh Games. Her personal best is 35.43, which won her the silver medal at the 2010 South Asian Games in Dhaka.
Shila’s event was the last for Bangladesh at this year’s World Swimming Championships. Earlier, the nation’s fastest swimmer, Mahfizur Rahman Sagor, finished 59th in men’s 50m freestyle and Anik Islam finished 61st in 50m butterfly.
