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.
You read earlier about Andrei Minakov’s European Junior Record in the 100 fly but read what else happened in St. Petersburg tonight.
A Russian Junior Record went down on the 2nd and final day of the 2020 Vladimir Salnikov Cup, courtesy of Anna Chernysheva.
Andrei Minakov is hot on the trail of a big-time swim in the men’s 50m fly, already putting up a lifetime best in the Russian Nats semifinal.
Kirill Prigoda didn’t swim the 200 breaststroke at last summer’s World Championships, but on Saturday he beat the World Champion none-the-less.
Andrei Minakov (above) is one of 3 Russian swimmers scheduled for double duty at the 2019 European Junior and FINA World Championships this summer.
