WOMEN’S 50 FREE FINAL

  1. Cate Campbell, 24.31
  2. Shayna Jack, 25.02
  3. Miki Uchida, 25.25

After her blistering 100 free that tied the 5th fastest performance in history, it looked as though Cate Campbell may slip under the 24 second barrier in the 50 free, something she has done on numerous occasions. She wasn’t quite that fast, winning in a still very respectable 24.31. Her teammate Shayna Jack went 25.02 for 2nd, and Miki Uchida was the first of the Japanese, 3rd in 25.25. Bronte Campbell didn’t swim in the final as only the top-2 non-Japanese swimmers make the final, and the B-final has no international swimmers.
