The British swimmers keep churning out great swims on night two of the World Championships. James Guy and Duncan Scott lead a very fast 200 free field into tomorrow with Scott leading the way at 1:45.16. Guy was second at 1:45.18. The two Brits lead reigning Olympic champ Sun Yang of China (1:45.24) and Townley Haas of the US (1:45.43).

It is a very fast 200 free final as eighth place was 1:46.28, with seven of the finalists turning in 1:45’s in the semi’s. Russians Aleksandr Krasnykh (1:45.47) and Mikhail Dovgalyuk (1:45.74) will join Hungarian Dominik Kozma (1:45.87) and Korean Park Tae Hwan (1:46.28) in the final tomorrow.

Guy will be looking to defend his world title from 2015 as Sun will be looking to back up his Olympic gold from last summer, as well as win his second gold of the meet after winning the 400 on Sunday night.
