There’s little doubt that Cate Campbell is going to take a run at her Commonwealth and Australian record tonight as she dropped an amazing time of 52.62 this morning in qualifying.  That swim not only smashed Natalie Coughlin’s 2010 Pan Pacific Championships record of 53.67, it also clipped Campbell’s Australian All Comers mark of 52.68 from the Australian Nationals this year.  It also moved her to the top of the world, ahead of Sarah Sjostrom’s world-leading 52.67 from the European Championships.

Cate’s sister Bronte made her way into the championship heat as well with a pretty strong 53.50, although she has a third-ranked 52.86 to her credit from the Commonwealth Games.  Australia actually went 1-2-3 in prelims with Melanie Schlanger posting a 53.65 as Coughlin’s Pan Pacs record actually went down in three straight heats with Schlanger, Bronte and Cate all taking out the mark.  Schlanger, however, will be relegated to the B final.

USA’s Missy Franklin (53.75) and Simone Manuel (53.91) finished fourth and fifth to move on to the A final, while Canada’s Chantal Van Landeghem (9th, 54.73), Japan’s Miki Uchida (10th, 54.86), and Canada’s Victoria Poon (12th, 55.06) were the beneficiaries of the two-per-country rule as a host of swimmers from Australia and the U.S. were bumped out of the big final.

Another Pan Pacific Championship record fell as USA’s Nathan Adrian powered his way to a 48.05 in prelims of the 100-meter freestyle.  that swim beat his 48.15 set back in 2010 when he won this race four years ago.  Adrian is still looking for that elusive 47 this year, but his swim this morning lowered his third-ranked season best of 48.08 from the Barcelona stop of the Mare Nostrum.

James Magnussen (47.59) and Cameron McEvoy (47.65) are the only two swimmers to put up 47s this year.  Magnussen made the A final with a second-place time of 48.25, while McEvoy also made the championship heat with a fourth-place 48.49.

Michael Phelps, the Greatest of All Time, definitely hit his wall as he had the fastest final 50 meters of the morning to qualify third in 48.45.  He came home in 24.77 to make sure he made the big final.

USA’s Ryan Lochte was bumped to the B final with a fifth-place 58.90 due to the two-per-country rule, while Brazil’s Joao de Lucca made the A final in 49.02 for sixth.  Brazil’s Nicolas Oliveira (8th, 49.13), Japan’s Katsumi Nakamura (13th, 49.30) and Japan’s Shinri Shioura (15th, 49.53) also picked up spots in the A final after a host of swimmers were relegated due to the two-per-country rule.

The Japanese contingent had an incredibly strong morning as Kosuke Hagino (4:11.48) and Daiya Seto (4:11.74) had their own swim in heat 2 going as the lead qualifying by more than a second.  Hagino is the top-ranked swimmer in teh world with a 4:07.88 from Japanese Nationals, while Seto is ranked third in 4:10.21 from the Japan Open.

USA’s Chase Kalisz (4:13.12) and Tyler Clary (4:13.88) finished third and fourth in prelims in the event, and potentially will be jockeying for bronze unless they can really turn up the heat in the finale.  Clary has a second-ranked 4:09.51 to his credit from U.S. Nationals, while Kalisz is ranked seventh in 4:11.52 from Nationals as well.

Australia’s Thomas Fraser-Holmes (9th, 4:18.41), South Africa’s Michael Meyer (10th, 4:18.89), Australia’s Travis Mahoney (11th, 4:19.12) and Canada’s Luke Reilly (12th, 4:21.39) comprised the rest of the A final as a boatload of swimmers from Japan and the U.S. were relegated due to the two-per-country rule.
