2 anos ago 0

The fifth day of the 14th FINA World Swimming Championships (25m), concluding this Sunday in Hangzhou (CHN), was the only one without World Records, but registered the best possible variety of winners, as the seven gold medals at stake were distributed among seven different countries. Russia and China got the gold in thrilling relays, Katinka Hosszu (HUN) earned her fourth gold in the competition, Nicholas Santos (BRA) beat Chad Le Clos in the men’s 50m fly, and Daiya Seto (JPN) got the fourth consecutive title in the 400m IM. There was still time for Alia Atkinson (JAM) and Olivia Smoliga (USA) to shine once more in the Hangzhou pool.
The individual action started with the women’s 200m IM, where favourite Katinka Hosszu (HUN) did not disappoint. The Magyar great perfectly controlled operations, touching home for the gold in 2:03.25. It was the third consecutive title for Hosszu (WR holder in 2:01.86) in this event, after the world crown in 2014 and 2016, and a silver in 2012. In Hangzhou, it was her fourth victory, after previous successes in the 200m fly, 100m IM and 400m IM. Melanie Margalis (USA, bronze in 2014), was second in Hangzhou, arriving in 2:04.62, while her teammate Kathleen Baker took the bronze in 2:05.54. Ye Shiwen, from China, silver medallist in 2010 and world champion in 2012, could not make the podium, concluding in fourth (2:05.79).
In a thrilling men’s 50m fly, Nicholas Santos (BRA) left like a bullet and managed to keep the pace until the end, touching for gold in 21.81, a new Championships Record. The Brazilian star is the WR holder in the distance, with a 21.75 effort from October in the Swimming World Cup, and improved the meet’s best mark, established by Chad Le Clos in Doha 2014 (21.95). The South African did slightly worse (21.97) in Hangzhou, earning the silver, while Dylan Carter, from Trinidad & Tobago, earned bronze in 22.38. It was the second-ever medal for the Caribbean nation, after the bronze of George Bovell in the 100m IM in 2012. For Santos, he was certainly happy to “recover” the gold after his victory in 2012, and subsequent triumphs of Le Clos in 2014 and 2016.
The sole US win of the day came in the women’s 50m back, with Olivia Smoliga ensuring the gold in 25.88 – she had been second in 2012, in Istanbul (TUR) and already first in the 100m back in Hangzhou. The silver went to Caroline Pilhatsch, from Austria, who clocked 25.99, while the bronze went to Australia’s Holly Barratt in 26.04. It was the first medal at this level for the 19-year-old European swimmer – in Windsor 2016, in the same event, she was only 28th!
In the men’s 400m IM, Daiya Seto (JPN) did a solitary race and looked in good position to improve the WR belonging to Ryan Lochte (USA) since 2010 in 3:55.50. Before the freestyle leg, he was well below the best global mark, but he then lost some energy and touched home in 3:56.43 for his fourth consecutive title in this event. The Japanese great had won the 200m fly in Hangzhou in a new WR time. The minor medals went to Thomas Fraser-Holmes (AUS, 4:02.74) and to Brandonn Almeida (BRA, 4:03.71).
