MEN’S 50M FREESTYLE

  • World record: 20.91 – Cesar Cielo (Brazil) 2009
  • Pan Am Games record: 21.58 – Cesar Cielo (Brazil) 2011
  • Americas record: 20.91 – Cesar Cielo (Brazil) 2009

Medallists

  1. Josh Schneider (USA) 21.86
  2. Bruno Fratus (Brazil) 21.91
  3. George Bovell (T&T) 22.17

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.

If he really is unshaved and untapered then he’s a fool for throwing away a certain Gold medal!
