Lara van Niekerk
100m breaststroke: Placed 10th overall in 1:06.75 and qualified for the semi-final. There she led in the first semi-final at the turn, but tired in the last 20m to finish 7th, also in 1:06.75, but that left her in 13th place after the semis and missing out on a place in the final. “It was actually an amazing experience … I enjoyed that moment so much, walking out there and experiencing all that. I definitely felt a bit nervous but it was good nerves. I saw at the turn that I was in front so I just tried to keep that gap, but I did die a bit at the end. I’m excited about the 50. With all the speed and all the starts that we’ve been practising I think the 50 is going to be the better one – and we focused more on the 50 for world champs.”
