Marleen Veldhuis missed Inge De Bruijn's record by 800ths-of-a-second but at the end of the clip you can see how elated she was. she later went on to set records in the 50 free and 50 'fly.

From Swimming World:

"...After just missing Inge de Bruijn's 100 fly world record, 56.61 to 56.69, earlier in the meet, Veldhuis tore through the women's 50 fly with a scorching time of 25.33. The effort eclipsed Sweden's Therese Alshammar's global standard of 25.46 set in 2007. The swim also crushed Veldhuis' national record of 25.62 set in February of this year. ..."
