It’s not only for Manaudou that its raining 21 over there. Bruno Fratus posted it twice yesterday, and for the fifth time in last month. In morning session, he classified with a 21”99, which is still a 21. And at finals, improved for 21”89, with a easy win. He went out the pool really satisfied, meanly helping his team with this several points. Also under olympic standart was Italo Manzine with 22’14 and Matheus Santana, third, with a 22”22.
Women’s 50 free
In the same event, but female, Etiene Medeiros took the gold with a 25”18, time not that fast for her, but enough to finish ahead Gracielle Hermann, second with 25”25. Both under olympic standarts, even its not on for us yet.
Women’s 400 IM
Joanna Maranhão, again, was completely dominant at this event, winning by almost 10 seconds. 4’43”35 it’s not even close her best time of the year, but the forth time in 2015 she swam under olympic standart, which it’s pretty consistent.
Men’s 400 IM
Pretty exciting watch Gabriel Ogawa‘s victory with Leonardo Santos‘ silver. Their first winning at Nationals ever. The exciting thing is that they are best friends and celebrated at home with crowd completely nuts by their race. Their times: 4’23”14 and 4’23”78 – PB for both.

A easy win for Leah Neale with 8’38”31, posting a new championship record. The australian won by 4 seconds the second place Poliana Okimoto, the best brazilian with 8’42”19.

No record for the men, but another easy victory. Corinthians led since beginning winning with 7’20”48, with João Veras Amorim, Fernando Ernesto, Leonardo de Deus and Thiago Simon.
