Prelims – Day 6
Russian Evgeny Rylov has had a pretty good time in Nanjing over the last week. The 17 year old took gold in the both the 50 and 100 backstroke (tying Italian Simone Sabbioni) along with another in the 4 x 100 medley relay. Rylov also broke the junior world record in the boys 50 backstroke posting a 25.09 and will be going into tonight’s 200 backstroke as the number one seed.
Rylov qualified with ease posting a time of 2:00.74, well off his best of 1:58.85. Luke Greenbank of Great Britain qualified in second with a time of 2:00.83 followed by Christopher Reid of South Africa who recorded a 2:00.93.
Anna Sztakovics of Hungary was the only girl to break the 2:30 mark in the prelims of the 200 breaststroke recording a time of 2:29.89. Anastasiya Malyavina of the Ukraine had the second fastest qualifying time of 2:30.11 followed by Dalma Sobestyen of Hungary who finished in a time of 2:30.90.
Tonight’s final will most likely have a very different feel as many of the women in the field have been under 2:30 in the past with Malyavina and Yang Jiwon of China having posted times of 2:27.46 and 2:27.10.
Nils Liess of Switzerland was the top qualifier in the boys 200 butterfly posting a time of 1:58.44. 200 IM gold medalist Benjamin Gratz of Hungary qualified second in a time of 1:59.31 followed by Luiz Altamir of Brazil who posted a 1:59.41. Gratz will the be the favourite in tonight’s final as he has a lifetime best of 1:57.91.
The girls 400 freestyle looks to be a great race this evening with all of the finalist swimming close to their best times in the prelims and only 2.21 separating first from eighth. Joanna Evans of the Bahamas had the fastest time of the morning recording a 4:13.74. She was followed by Melinda Novoszath of Hungary who qualified in a time of 4:14.14 and Brazilian Bruna Veronez who finished in a time of 4:14.38.
