Leading up to Rio it looked as though all Cam McEvoy($1.85) had to do to win this event was show up.
However through the heats and semi’s that has looked far from the case. The Wolf is still happy to stick with “The Professor” however it is going to be a lot closer than first thought. The reigning champion from USA, Nathan Adrian ($3.25) posted the fastest time in the 4×100 mens relay and semi and takes lane 4 in the final.
Teenage sensation, Kyle Chalmers ($4.50) from Australia also looked dominant in his semi-final and came from behind again to qualify 2ndfastest.
