Men’s 100 Butterfly, Day 6 Prelims: Crocker Blasts Back into Form as Fastest Qualifier; Serdinov and Phelps Right on his Tail.  -- August 19, 2004 Ian Crocker may be a factor in the 100 Free

By Stephen J. Thomas

ATHENS, August 19. WORLD record-holder Ian Crocker looks to have shaken off a throat infection that has affected his performances thus far at these Games when he clocked a swift 52.03 in the 100m butterfly to edge World Champs bronze medalist Ukranian Andriy Serdinov (52.05) for the fastest prelims time this morning.

Michael Phelps cruised to 52.35 with Milo Cavic (52.44) and a back-to-form Aussie Geoff Huegill, the Olympic record-holder and bronze medalist from Sydney, next in 52.54. Croatian Duje Draganja (52.56) and German Thomas Rupprath (52.57) were also in the top half.

Veteran Franck Esposito (52.61) will swim tonight as will Russian Igor
Marchenko (52.62), Japan’s Takashi Yamamoto (52.71), Brazil’s Gabe Mangabeira (52.76), Brit James Hickman (52.91) and Sydney finalist Canadian Mike Mintenko (53.07).

It took 53.11 or better to make the cut.
