MEN’S 200 BUTTERFLY – FINALS
Russia’s Evgney Koptelov absolutely destroyed the men’s 200 butterfly, posting the second fastest time in the world this year, 1:54.79. That time bumps him ahead of Chad le Clos and puts him just behind Daiya Seto in the world rankings. Previously, Koptelov was ranked eighth in the world with his time of 1:55.58.
The Silver medal went to Yajima Yuya of Japan with a time of 1:55.73. His teammate, Umemoto Masayuki, finished third with a 1:56.12 for the bronze medal.
Just outside of medal position was Italy’s Francesco Pavone with a 1:56.18. Also in the 1:56 range was Jordan Coelho of France.
The final three swimmers, Nicholas Brown (AUS), Aleksandr Pribytok (RUS), and Andrew Seliskar all finished with 1:57’s.
Seliskar’s swim was very gutsy, but it hurt him on the final 50 meters of the race. Out in 55.09, he maintained 29’s during the second and third 50’s, but was unable to hold on through the last lap. At the 150, he split 1:24.80 and was leading the race. During the final 50 meters, however, he fell from first to last with a 32.87 split.
