The first finisher was Brazil’s Cesar Cielo, who defended his title in 23.01. Cielo can’t rely on his start like he once did, and so he had to have a perfect finish, which it appeared that he did. He also did the race in a no-breather, which he says is the first time he’s ever done that on the 50 fly. (Image Courtesy of Victor Puig, victorpuig.com)
If the rest of the field doesn’t wake-up in the 100 backstroke semifinals, Missy Franklin could be swimming alone on her way to gold. (Photo: Victor Puig/victorpuig.com)
