Day 2 didn’t see much change in the top-8 ranked Brazilians in line to qualify for the World Championships.

After day 1, four swims had made the grade while the other four were from the Brazil Open in November. All of the swims currently in the top-8 are from men.

The only swim that moved into the top-8 on day 2 was Guilherme Guido‘s 100 back, as his 53.78 100 back prelim scored 901 points, moving him into a tie with Henrique Martins for 4th. Guido was a touch slower in the final, still winning easily in 53.84.

The other notable swim from day 2 was Thiago Simon’s 1:59.49 200 IM, but his 2:10.78 200 breast from November scores higher so that swim is a non-factor in the list.

Here’s the top-8 after day 2, per Alex Pussieldi for Best SwimmingThe top-8 after the meet will be automatically named to the World Championship team.

  1. Felipe Lima, 100 Breaststroke, 59.32, 930 points
  2. Joao Gomes Junior, 100 Breaststroke, 59.41, 926 points
  3. Thiago Simon, 200 Breaststroke, 2:10.78, 915 points
  4. Henrique Martins, 100 Butterfly, 51.57, 901 points*
  5. Guilherme Guido, 100 Backstroke, 53.78, 901 points*
  6. Brandonn Almeida, 400 IM, 4:12.49, 900 points
  7. Gabriel Santos, 100 Free, 48.60, 899 points
  8. Leonardo de Deus, 200 Butterfly, 1:56.21, 883 points

The same system is in place for the Junior World Championships. There were two big movers on day 2, Fernanda Goeiji moved up from 6th to 3rd with her runner-up 1:02.04 in the 100 back, while Rafaela Raurich led off the 4×200 free relay in 1:59.68, moving her up from 3rd to 2nd.

Guido, Lima (Gomes jr), Martins, Chierighini (Cielo, De Santana, Santos..) could be an interesting medley relay, and everyone could easily imagine an interesting 400 free relay.
The main problem looks to be the consistency of performances (also between heats and finals..) regarding too many Brazilian swimmers.

Happy to see Raurich (first time I watched her swimming was at Worlds jr 2015 when she was 15 year old) under 2′ in the 200 free.


I don’t know if João went easy on prelims as he could go so but Martins and Guido were pretty constant bad thing is Guido went 53 flat not long ago. 100 free is today so we will know the shape of the relays today.


2 48 Mids on the morning, Chiereghinni on 48,46 , Fratus on 48,50, Gabriel Santos 49,12 (PB 48,60) and Cielo with an easy 49,16 according to Pussieldi reports.. Also heard that Cielo might have swam on Briefs but not confirmed.. Probably expecting 4 to 6 48 at Night (4 mentioned here plus Henrique Martins and maybe Santana (If he seems to at least return to his 2014 form)


Cielo was in a black jammer.
I don’t know if Santana is near his best.Santana with a bad coming home(25.99) is very bad.And I hope Fratus is consistent in the final.His 100free normally is better at prelims than finals…
