Hugo González, sixth in an end of 100 back of enormous level

The medal is delayed but trust arrives for Hugo Gonzálezde Oliveira, sixth in an end of 100 back of enormous level. On the street one, the Spaniard improved the personal brand of him (52.78) and exceeded in a position, even, the position with which he was classified by the final. Since it was launched to the Aquatic Center pool of Tokyo, it has gone from least to more, an exceptional printing for the test in which it has more aspirations to the podium, the 200 styles, in which it has been champion of Europe, whose series It will swim at the next day with the sight on the end of Thursday.

The victory was surprisingly for Evgeny Rylov, Russian racing under the coi flag. He started on Calle Dos, next to Hugo González, but he was impossible to hold for the Mallorcan swimmer, who had a good step by 50, in 25.6, although insufficient to reach the podium. Rylov defeated the clear favorite, the world recordman Ryan Murphy, and his compatriot Kliment Kolesnikov, second. The victor's mark, below 52 seconds (51.98), shows the level of a career in which the world record is at 51.85. More than half of its participants improved their personal records. The first two rungs of the podium were occupied by Russians without a flag in an Olympic final that the United States did not lose since 1996.

It was, then, too much for Hugo González, in his second games at age 22. Instead, 200 styles is a much more open test, where nobody has clearly taken a domain of the test like the one who had Michael Phelps and Ryan Lochte. The 400 styles already showed it.
