Zhao Xianjian kicked the afternoon off with a new meet record in the 50 fly, at 23.46. Shi Yang was also under previous meet record pace at 23.56. Sprint fly specialist and 2012 Olympian Lu Ying won on the women’s side, going 26.57.

Qiu Ziao took gold in the men’s 1500 free finals, which lacked world record holder Sun Yang.

In the men’s 4×100 free relay, the team from Guangdong took gold and set a new meet record in 3:18.96. The real race was for second place: team Zhejiang went 3:22.90 to just touch out  team Beijing, who went 3:22.92. On the women’s side, Jiangsu Province and Beijing were locked in a showdown, both going under the previous meet record. Jiangsu Province came out on top in 3:42.53, followed by Beijing’s 3:42.54.
