Whether it will be enough to have him dream of an Olympic title retained is another matter but Frenchman Yannick Agnel got his hand to the wall first in a tight tusssle over 200m freestyle in the opening sessions of finals in Canet as the Mare Nostrum Tour reached its midway point. Agnel’s 1:47.28 compared to the 1:47.83 in which Britain’s Stephen Milne finished fifth. In between came two men who entered the fray with a 400m final in their arms at the start of the session and one who came back to back from the 200 back final and a 4:09 win in the 400IM: Myles Brown (RSA), 1:47.62, and James Guy (GBR), the World champion on 1:47.71, split by the backstroke-medley man, Kosuke Hagino and a 1:47.69 for Japan.
