Monterrey 2008, Day 5: 3rd individual gold for Sokolova (RUS) & Bell (NZL); Knutson (USA) wins 4th gold (2nd relay)

The most relevant news from the preliminaries on Day 5 of the 2nd FINA World Junior Swimming Championships taking place in Monterrey from July 8-13, 2008, concern Orinoco Faamausli, the New Zealand swimmer who on Day 4 dominated the 50m freestyle final. This morning he did not swim the 100m freestyle he wanted so much to win and that he would have probably have won seeing that he had set the Championships record in 50.29 swimming the lead-off leg of the 4x100m freestyle relay in the preliminaries of the first day of the Championships. Orinoco was compelled to scratch because of a stomach sickness overnight, which left him in frustration.For the first time no Championships record was set in the preliminaries.
