The highlight of today’s morning action at the Brazil Open in Palhoca was a 54.26 South American record in the 100m freestyle by backstroke world s/c dash champion Etiene Medeiros; the men’s 100m free leaves Cesar Cielo in 11th, most of those ahead of him heading for another battle in afternoon action

Just some quick notes:

Guido time is a new South American Record on 100 back, surpassing his 53,12 from Pan Am.

Etiene PB was 54,99, she did that time on Maria Lenk opening a relay (Just to qualify for Pan and Worlds Relay), but she said her top goal now is the 50 free (She has a 24,55 as PB on this event)

Thiago Pereira due to comercial responsabilities is already going back to US and will not swim finals, he didn´t even rest for the meet.

Cielo acted in a way I don´t approve and left Palhoça and will not swim the 50m free too.

Santana said he wants finally a 47 on the afternoon, Chiereginni didn´t gave an interview but his personal objective is a 47 too. Also, de Lucca missed finals. Probably the 100 free race (relay specially) will only finish on Maria Lenk.

Also, Henrique time was actually good considering he had the worst start, going onyl 24,53 on first 50. He probably can go a 51 mid with some improvement on the beginning, that would bode well for a brazilian medley relay

Thanks for the notes Rafael, much appreciated. It is a format and results service that makes it less than fun to cover, to be honest.

Cielo didn’t digest well his 11th and is out of Open(will not contest 50free). It was told he was two months and a half out of pool work because of his shoulder, but he was expecting more from his body.

Thanks for the info DDias.
