19th FINA World Swimming Championships
Duncan Scott is the biggest absence from the FINA World Swimming Championships due to COVID-19 reasons. Team GB did not expect this situation: to have both Adam Peaty Duncan Scott out of Worlds. Great Britain are the current World Champions in the men’s 4×100 medley relay (Luke Greenbank,, James Guy, Adam Peaty and Duncan Scott in 2019).
This year the team will only count with backstroke specialist and Olympic Medalist, Greenbank and World Champion, Guy.
During the first day of the 19th FINA World Swimming Championships he qualified to the semifinal of both men’s 50 butterfly and 100 meter breaststroke. He is favorite to medal in both events. What are your predictions?
In a time of 22.87 Dylan Carter broke his own national record and will be the number one seed heading into the semifinals. Dressel, Ceccon and Andrew were the only other 3 swimmers under 23 seconds.
Maria Matta Cocco finished in 17th place in the women’s 100 meter butterfly, only 1 spot away from making the semifinals cut. During the first day of prelims, she was the best Mexican in the pool.
