Persevering with his spectacular run, ace Indian swimmer Srihari Nataraj superior to the finals of the lads’s 50m backstroke occasion on the Commonwealth Video games in Birmingham on Sunday. The 21-year-old clocked 25.38 to emerge the eighth quickest swimmer throughout semifinals to make his second remaining of the Birmingham Video games. The seasoned Sajan Prakash, however, completed a disappointing ninth the lads’s 200m butterfly, his pet occasion.
Nataraj had clocked 25.52 seconds in heats, making the 50m backstroke semifinals.
The Bengaluru swimmer had completed seventh within the males’s 100m backstroke remaining on Saturday night time.
Within the males’s 200m butterfly, Prakash completed fourth in his warmth after clocking 1:58:99s and was placed on the reserve record as he was the ninth quickest swimmer total. The highest eight transfer to the ultimate.
Prakash and Kieren Pollard from Australia clocked the identical time resulting in a swim off. He then produced a timing of 1:58.31 to win the swim off between the 2 to develop into the primary reserve.
In case any one of many eight finalists wouldn’t have taken the pool or had withdrawn from the ultimate race, Prakash would have taken his place.
However the Indian didn’t get the prospect, ending ninth.
Swim-off is a particular swimming race by which the winner qualifies for the following stage after failing to make it by the same old elimination races.
