World Cup Budapest, Day 3 Prelims: Qin Haiyang Progresses In Bid For Treble

Qin Haiyang progressed safely into the 200 breaststroke final as he seeks to complete the treble triple crown on the final day of the World Aquatics Swimming World Cup in Budapest.

The Chinese swimmer – who has won the 50 and 100 triple crowns following victories across all three stops in Berlin, Athens and the Hungarian capital – went through fourth 2:12.36.

Olympic silver medallist Arno Kamminga headed the field in 2:11.43.

Kaylee McKeown – who has set WRs in the 50 and 100 backstroke so far this weekend – clocked 2:10.54 over 200m.

Sarah Sjostrom booked lane four in the women’s 100 free in 53.96 – the only sub 54 in the field – ahead of Bronte Campbell (54.26), Marrit Steenbergen (54.30), Cate Campbell (54.35) and Siobhan Haughey (54.42), who is looking to add the 100 triple crown to the 200 she completed on Saturday.

Benedetta Pilato was the only woman to break 30secs in the 50 breaststroke in 29.87 while Steenbergen and Alexandria Perkins headed the 200IM and 100 fly respectively, with Zhang Yufei also through in the latter.

Danys Rapsys booked lane four in his 200 free treble bid in 1:45.91, Michael Andrew heads the 50 fly (23.35) – with 2017 world champion Ben Proud squeaking in in eighth – while Oli Morgan leads the way in the 100 back (54.46).
