Anna Egorova (pictured) will look to add a second event to her Olympic program in the women’s 200 freestyle on Day 4 in Kazan.
Evgeny Rylov will look to make the Russian Olympic team on Monday in the men’s 100 backstroke, where he’ll battle head-to-head with Kliment Kolesnikov.
A strong Russian squad, led by Oleg Kostin, Aleksandr Popkov, and Alexander Kudashev are all threats to win gold in the men’s butterfly events.
On day 2 of the 2017 Russian National Championships, backstroke standout Evgeny Rylov stormed to gold in the 100 back.
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.
