ROME, Italy, July 26. WORLD record holder Rafael Munoz led the way during the semifinal heats of the men's 50 fly at the FINA World Championships.


Munoz clocked in with a meet record time of 22.68. The swim beat the mark of 22.90 he tied Roland Schoeman to set this morning, but is still well off his global mark of 22.43.

Serbia's Milorad Cavic qualified second in 22.75, with Brazil's Nicholas Santos placing third in 23.00.

Croatia's Duje Draganja (23.03), Australia's Matt Targett (23.04), Venezuela's Albert Subirats (23.05), Kenya's Jason Dunford (23.10) and Denmark's Jakob Andkjaer (23.14) completed the final field. Schoeman, surprisingly, finished outside of the top eight with a ninth-place 23.18 after clocking a 22.90 in prelims.

July 26, 2009 Cavic is looking awfully good for that 100 fly.

July 27, 2009 And Munoz even better...

July 27, 2009 Actually my money for the 100 would be on Cavic between those two. Munoz is (so far) off his best times, whereas Cavic just did his best 50 fly by .36. Also, it's not clear yet how well Munoz does when there are semi-finals. Phelps is still obviously the favorite, but it looks as if he's going to get another run for his money from Cavic.
