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.

Monterrey 2008, Day 3: Bell rings 2nd bell : After winning the 100 back the Kiwi takes gold in the 100 fly

Italy’s Silvia Di Pietro (1993) was fastest in the women’s 50m butterfly preliminaries on Day 3 of the FINA World Junior Swimming Championships in Monterrey (MEX), with a time of 26.99. In the semi-finals, in spite of a slow start, she improved her mark to 26.83; the only swimmer to go under 27 seconds and obviously the fastest qualifying time. Both times were FINA World Championships records.In the men’s 50m freestyle another Italian, Luca Leonardi (1991), posted the fastest time with 22.66, another Championships record. Curiously the 2nd , 3rd , 4th and 5th qualifiers were, respectively, the surprising Virdhawal Vikr Khade (IND, 1991, 22.69), Orinoco Faamausili (NZL, 1990, 22.71), Oleg Tikhobaev (RUS, 1990, 22.73) and Luca Dotto (ITA, 1990, 22.75). A heated final is easily predictable.
