Women’s 200 Butterfly Prelims, Day 4: Jedrzejczak Fastest. Nakanishi, Risztov, Sandeno and Thomas All Qualify

By Stephen J. Thomas

ATHENS, Greece August 17. WORLD record-holder and world champion, 20-year-old Pole Otylia Jedrzejczak, looked very comfortable when she cruised through the heat of her signature event this morning in the only time under 2:10.

Temperatures were cooler than in recent days but swimmers still had to contend with a 14km per hour ‘breeze’ blowing from the north. The rowing events were postponed yesterday and swimmers quickly realized they needed to watch the lane ropes as they navigated the pool.

Next through out of only four heats was Japan's World Championships bronze medalist Yuko Nakanishi (2:10.04) and World Champs silver medalist Eva Risztov from Hungary (2:10.49).

The USA's Kaitlin Sandeno, a dual Olympic medalist thus far and a finalist in Sydney in this event, qualified easily in 2:10.50. Her teammate Dana Kirk had it a little tougher, but came through in 12th place (2:11.96).

World number one Petria Thomas, the two-lap gold medalist, swam a well-paced 2:10.87 with Aussie teammate Felicity Galvez also through in 2:11.17.
Brit Georgina Lee posted a solid time 2:11.17.

These are the swimmers most likely to make it through the semis tonight.
