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.
