Men’s 100 Free Semi-Finals:

After a rough heat swim this morning which landed him as the sixteenth seed in semi-finals, the USA’s Nathan Adrian has redeemed himself by claiming the fastest time of the evening in the men’s 100 free. Adrian stopped the clock at a 47.83 from lane eight of heat one.

The Aussie duo of Kyle Chalmers and Cameron McEvoy picked up the second and third place seeds from separate heats. Chalmers snuck his hand in ahead of Canada’s Santo Condorelli in heat two to stop the clock at a 47.88, while McEvoy posted a 47.93 from heat one. Condorelli delivered a matching 47.93 from heat two.

Caeleb Dressel of the USA will return tomorrow night as the fifth place seed with a 47.97.

Belgium’s Pieter Timmers picked up the sixth place seed with a 48.14, while Great Britain’s Duncan Scott was seventh with a 48.20.

Brazil’s Marcelo Chierighini rounds out the top eight with a 48.23.
