Beijing, Day 1: Stars swim faster in Olympic venue

The inaugural day of the second meet of the 2020 FINA Champions Swim Series in Beijing (CHN) was highlighted by thrilling races and, in the majority of the 15 races on the programme, by faster times than the ones established in the first leg of the competition, in Shenzhen. In fact, the only exceptions to this trend were the women’s 400m free, the men’s 100m breast, the women’s 50m back, and the 4x100m free mixed relay. And, as in Shenzhen, the race of the day was the men’s 200m free, with the duel between Lithuania’s Danas Rapsys and China’s local hero Sun Yang.

Lima (BRA): “I take things step by step”

Five years. Starting swimming at 12 and competing internationally at 17 is definitively not a common thing. But in the case of Felipe Lima, from Brazil, nothing seems impossible. “We can say I started late, only at 12, for medical reasons, but for me was not a problem. I progressed quite quickly, getting my first open national title at 18”, he admits. Born on April 5, 1985 in Cuiabá (Mato Grosso State in Brazil), his first FINA record dates back from November 2002, at the Rio de Janeiro leg of the FINA Swimming World Cup – sixth in the 100m breast, in 1:02.80.
