Noteworthy, all five Brazilian girls made PB in the A final of 200free.


The SA record can go down easily, the aggregate time of top 4 is already faster than the record. Brazil can probably get a spot on final and go around 7,51, which is not medal level, but is a big improvement for Brazilian Women swimming..


Morning Results:

Men 100 free:
Chiereghinni first with 48,20, Nicolas with 48,30 De Lucca with 48,59, Condorelli 48,78, Gabriel Santos 48,89, Cielo 48,97 and Santana/Gabrich/Spajari with 49,30
Seems Cielo won´t swim final, so he may have given goodbye for the relay unless he drop a monster split on any relay or get put into the team by the Head Coach.
Top 18 under 50, with Fratus and Felipe Ribeiro on B Final.

Current team is Chiereghinni, Nicolas, De Lucca and Santana (48,71 from December)

Women 200 fly: Joanna went 2:11 on the Morning and need to drop 2:09 (Which she already did before) to go below A Cut.

Men 200 Breast: Tales Rocha with A Cur with 2:10:99
Trying on the afternoon will be Pereira, Felipe Lima, Felipe França and Thiago SImon, who has a PB of 2:09
