50 'Fly: The Blade And The Bull Lead Charge
Jul 26, 2009 - Craig Lord
No sooner had Roland Schoeman (RSA), The Blade, set a championship record of 22.90 in the 20th heat of the 50m butterfly thanworld-record holder Rafa Munoz (ESP), leader of the sprint fly bull run, stepped up in another shiny suit and matched it. Just 0.03sec behind, Milorad Cavic (SRB) went through to the semis in third place.
Next through were Jakob Andkjaer (DEN), on 23.04, with Andrew Lauterstein (AUS) appearing to ease off into the wall for a 23.10 finish.
How time flies:
