Ruta Meilutyte, the Plymouth-based Lithuanian, cracked the European record with a storming 1:05.20 victory in the 100m breaststroke at the Monte Carlo round of the Mare Nostrum Tour a moment ago. Out in 30.80, she was slower than any of her splits at the Olympic Games on the way to gold at 15 last summer in London; Solid wins, too, for Olympic champions Camille Muffat and Chad Le Cos [Photo: courtesy of Arena]

Top FOUR proceed to the semis (sunday 16:30 before the A finals 17:00), thereafter top 2 to the finals (18:20).
If you reach the final, you swam 5 times your fifty meters!
