In the fourth morning of action in Rio, youth led the way in the opening event. Kyle Chalmers of Australia touched .01 ahead of American Caeleb Dressel in 100 freestyle prelims. Chalmer’s teammate Cameron McEvoy earned the fourth seed. Defending Olympic gold medalist Nathan Adrian finished sixteenth.

Mireia Belmonte Garcia of Spain posted the fastest 200 butterfly of the morning. Only .03 behind her American teammates Cammile Adams and Hali Flickinger tied for the second spot.

Anton Chupkov of Russia put together a quick prelims 200 breaststroke, finishing six tenths ahead of the next best swimmer, Yashuri Koseki of Japan. Heading to semifinals in the third spot is Great Britain’s Andrew Willis.

Finals relay lineups will be available later this afternoon. Great Britain posted the fastest time of the morning in the men’s 800 freestyle relay though the American and Russian relays were less than a half second behind.

    NBC is doing a pretty good job of hiding the leader’s turns from us by showing their names over the lane. There must be a better way to do this so that we can see the turn and push-off more clearly as this can be an important part of every race at this level.
    Also, how parochial is NBC? I saw the faces of the 1 and 3rd USA men’s 100 Back but never saw the silver medalist despite the significance of earning such a medal!
