For the second time today Josh Schneider of the United States dipped under the 22-second barrier in the 50m freestyle. This time, he was just a little bit faster than he was in prelims which gives him the fifth ranked time in the world this season.
Bruno Fratus of Brazil showed up after a rather disappointing prelim swim, going 21.91 to be the only other swimmer of the day to drop below 22-seconds.
Famed sprinter George Bovell managed to get his hand on the wall for the bronze in 22.17.
