Sean Gunn’s first swim at the Olympics started off pretty well. Gunn finished second in his heat in 50.87.
The fastest 16 swimmers of the eight prelims will advance to semi-finals. Although it is not certain that Gunn will advance, his time puts him in a very good place to move forward.
The semi-finals for the men’s 100m freestyle begin tonight at 9:03 p.m.
UPDATE: Gunn did not advance to the semi-finals.
