The Tank moves in


The heats for the menís 100m butterfly have got underway with two of the favourites making it through to the semi-finals.

Geoff Huegill

Geoff Huegill will be hoping to add another gold to his collection

Local boy James Hickman had one of the fastest times in his heat with Australian Geoff Huegill not far behind in second.

Huegill counts breaking 50m butterfly short course world record at a World Cup meet in December 2001 as one of his achievements. It was this event which he gained gold in at the pool on 1 August.

Hickman who won bronze in the 200m butterfly will be joined by compatriots Steve Parry and David Bennett in the semis.

The fastest heat was swum by Canadaís Mike Mintenko, also known as The Tank. He missed out on a medal when he came fourth in the 50m butterfly final on 1 August.
