Brazil’s Maria Lenk Trophy wasn’t the world’s deepest world champ trials meet, nor the strongest overall. But in a very specific sense, it may have been the fastest.
Bruno Fratus and Cesar Cielo both posted 21.7 50 frees on the final day of the Maria Lenk Trophy.
Marcelo Chierighini moved into a World Championship position with a 48.46 in the men’s 100 free on day 2 of Maria Lenk.
Two South American Records fell on day 3 of the Maria Lenk Trophy, along with numerous swims moving into the top 10 in the world for 2016-17.

Team Brazil comes away from this Olympic Games medal-less, only the second host nation to do so in swimming in this century besides Greece from 2004.
