Roma 09: Day 4 Prelims

One main thing to say about prelims: I am SO happy for Mary Descenza. Even if it was a suit-aided world record, I think this may be her break-out onto top of the world stage. After all the disappointments, she has earned this. (This also makes a close battle for the perseverance award with Dana Vollmer!)

Predix for finals:

M 200 Fly:
Gold: Phelps 1:51.37 WR
Silver: Takeshi Matsuda 1:52.58
Bronze: Tyler Clary 1:52.90

W 200 Free:
Gold: Federica Pellegrini 1:53.80
Silver: Dana Vollmer 1:55.02 AR
Bronze: Joanne Jackson 1:55.36

M 50 Breast:
Gold: Cameron van der Burgh 26.68 WR
Silver: Felipe Silva 26.84
Bronze: Brenton Rickard 26.91

M 800 Free:
Gold: Ous Mellouli 7:39.07
Silver: Ryan Cochrane 7:41.23
Bronze: Zhang Lin 7:41.88

World records in the men's 100 free and women's 50 back are toast during semis!
