Friday marks the fourth of five days of swimming at the 2019 Pan Am Games, where there will be medals awarded in six different events.
The preliminary schedule is a relatively light one, with only the men’s and women’s 50 free and 400 IM on the docket.
At night, there will also be the men’s and women’s 4×200 freestyle relays.
- The only notable scratch for the preliminary session comes from Puerto Rico’s Kristen Romano, who is out of the women’s 400 IM after coming in with the sixth seed.
MEDEIROS, FRATUS LOOK TO MOVE UP ONE SPOT IN 50 FREE
Medeiros, who picked up an individual bronze last night in the 100 back to give her three medals here in Lima, won silver in Toronto four years ago in what was a South American Record time of 24.55.
For Fratus, he’s looking for his first individual gold medal at the Pan Am Games after taking back-to-back silvers in the 50 free.
He’s certainly the favorite this year, and has a realistic shot to break Cielo’s Games Record of 21.58.
The 30-year-old owns a total of four relay gold medals from the Pan Am Games, including one this year in the men’s 4×100 free.
WOMEN’S 400 IM COULD BE CANADA’S BEST CHANCE FOR GOLD
With Canada yet to strike gold here in Lima with only two days remaining, the women’s 400 IM signals one of their best chances to do so.
ALMEIDA EYES DOUBLE IN MEN’S MEDLEY
Almeida was about two seconds off his best time in the 200 back earlier in the meet and based off what he swam at the World Championships in this event (4:15.92), it could be a very close race between the three. He has been as fast as 4:12.49 but that’s from back in 2016.
Neither Swanson or Bentz have had an individual event yet in Lima.
