Very interesting semifinals. Impressive Adam Peaty. Very surprised how the Brazilian swimmers couldn’t hold their speed for the whole race. One positive note for Australian male breaststroke: Jake Packard managed t qualify for the final. Hopefully he can continue improving for the final and later for the 4x100m medley relay.
