Hugo González, seventh in semifinals, accesses at the end of 100 back

From eighth to fourth in 50 meters, Hugo González de Oliveira made a spectacular progression to scratch his first Olympic Final, at 100 back, although his star test is 200 styles, in which he was a European champion this year. Contact with this first final, which agreed with the seventh time of semifinalists, which will take you to Eight Street, it is very important to cushion the pressure on Mallorcan, 22, the face of the future of the Spanish swimming in the autumn of Mireia Belmonte.

The semifinal was demanding, given the quality of rivals such as Russians, under Olympic flag, Kolesnikov and Rylov. But, unlike in the finals, it is usually beneficial when what is involved is to obtain the classification, given the references they offer. It happened, for example, Mireia in the direct semifinals of 400 styles. The risk is to be defolded at the beginning. It is the impression that Hugo González offered, as he was last as he was passing through the first 50. He had, however, reserves, a fact that he demonstrates that he swam with calculation, a symptom of competitive maturity.

The Spaniard needed to approach the 52,90 he did in the Budapest European to get on the second rung of the podium. He did in Tokyo 53.05, 40 hundredths better than in semifinals, contrary to what happens at the Aquatic Center, in which he has been usual to swim faster in the afternoons than in the mornings, even in some finals. He succeeded the winner of the semifinal of Hugo González and one of the favorites, Kolesnikov, who went from 52.15 in series at 52.90. In the final he will go, in good, faster.

Hugo González, son of Spanish father and Brazilian mother, has already leap more than in Rio, where he competed very young and reached semifinals of this same test. He now has to administer participation at the end of 100 back with the series of 200 styles, where he aspires more clearly to a medal, as it is a more open test. The march of swimmers like Michael Phelps and Ryan Lochte has left the styles open to more alternatives, as we already saw at 400, where Chase Liszt's gold was accompanied by a mediocre brand.
