Shi Jinglin and Xu Jiayu, respectively in the 100m breaststroke and backstroke, claimed national titles that stamped their tickets to the Rio 2016 Olympic Games with world top-5 ranked efforts on the third day of action at Chinese nationals and trials in Foshan. There was drama in the women’s 100m backstroke final when Wang Xueer snatched victory ahead of Chen Jie, both just inside the minute but Fu Yuanhui, the world dash champion who has led the charge on speed for China over 100m and its medley relay, bombed out in 1:02. There was also a 1:47.28 win for Wang Shun in the men’s 200m freestyle two days after his 400m medley victory.
