High Fives From Gomes*, Lima & Martins, 100BR & 100Fly; Maranhão Sets Record

Cesar Cielo - by Patrick B. Kraemer

Joao Gomes Junior* and Henrique Martins went top five in the world in the 100m breaststroke and 100m butterfly respectively – Felipe Lima having gone there, too, in 100m breaststroke heats – and Joanna Maranhão set a new Brazilian 400m free record of 4:09.41 despite a power cut on the first day of the Maria Lenk Trophy in Rio de Janeiro.

So it’s not the first 51 in textile but yes the first after the shiny-suit era.

Eyes in Joanna since she might break Georgina Bardach’s south-american record in 400 m medley, from 2004 bronze effort. Joanna also clocked a sub 1min in the 100m fly for the first time of her career in the prelims but did not swan the final.

Best,
Denis

Thanks Denis. The file is Liz’s. “post-shiny age of textile” it is 🙂
