Jaukovic breaks world short-course record

Matt Jaukovic, a former Montenegro swimmer now competing for Australia, has broken the 50-meter butterfly short-course world record at a World Cup meet.
Jaukovic finished in 22.50 seconds Saturday to break the previous mark of 22.60 set by Kaio Almeida of Brazil in Santos, Brazil in December 2005.
In other races, Olympic 1,500-meter champion Oussama Mellouli of Tunisia won three events _ the 400 freestyle and individual medleys over 100 and 400 meters. Katheryn Meakum of South Africa picked up two wins, in the 200 individual medley and 800 freestyle.
