Day 4 Prelims heat sheets

16-year-old Giulia Salin of Italy has withdrawn from heats of the women’s 400 free. She was the eighth seed entered with a time of 4:10.13. Salin picked up a bronze medal in the 800 free on Day Two of 2019 World Junior Championships, finishing behind Australia’s Lani Pallister (8:22.49 for a Championship Record) and Japan’s Miyu Namba (8:27.24) with 8:28.99. That was just a tick faster than the 8:29.11 she went to win the 800 free with a Championship Record at 2019 European Junior Championships. Salin is seeded second in the 1500 free whose final will be swum on Saturday evening. Both Pallister and Salin are expected to swim in heats of the 400 free, and then again in the 1500 free on Saturday.

Blake Manoff of USA, who was only scheduled to swim the 100m fly in the original Entries Book, was added to the 50m fly heats and is swimming in lane 6 of heat 8 –or the position of the 12th seed– with an entry time of 24.36.
