Eva Merrell Scratches 100 Fly Heats on Day 5 of Junior Worlds

6th FINA World Junior Swimming Championships

All members of Sunday morning’s circle-seeded heats (top 24 athletes for 50s and 100s; top 16 for 200s and 400s) are expected to report to their respective heats and lanes, with one exception: USA’s Eva Merrell, the number 4 seed in the women’s 100 fly, does not appear on the start list. It was Merrell’s only individual event at World Junior Swimming Championships.

In the women’s 4×100 free, neither Turkey nor Great Britain will field a relay team in Sunday’s heats.
