Swimming: Day Four Qualifying Heats



4 swimmers in this first heat with the first 3 pretty much in a line with the swimmer in lane 6 falling behind slightly

Turkish athlete pulling away from the field and finished in a time of 2.10.6 just outside her PB

Results from the first heat.

BRIT ALERT The next heat is the start of the seeded heats and we have Aimee willmot in the outside lane could we see her sneak into the semi finals

The Chinese swimmer taking it out down the first 50 28.64 for the first 50 in a 200 Fly I can't imagine how much that will hurt later

And she's paying for it a little already she's fallen back to fourth at the 100 then back to second at 150

Aimee Wilmott finishes 7th in a 2.09.1 not her greatest effort if I'm honest but that can't be helped

The 16 year old Japanese swimmer takes the first of the seeded heats

And now it's time for the Iron Lady Katinka Hosszu this is her 3rd or 4th event at these games. I lose count of how many swims she does. She is just a machine.

I take that back Hosszu will not be swimming this event she has pulled out. That certainly opens up the field for the rest of the swimmers
