Both Henrique Martins and Felipe Lima started out Brazil’s Maria Lenk Trophy on a high note, hitting top-5 world-ranked times in prelims of the 100 fly and 100 breast, respectively.

Martins went 51.57 to take the top spot in the men’s 100 fly. That time jumps to #4 in the world ranks, and Martins will still have tonight’s final to move further up the ranks. He’ll also have a test tonight from Vinicius Lanza, who was 52.33 this morning and has a good shot to join Martins in the 51s tonight.
