5/5 - (1 vote)
India has entered 6 swimmers to this prestigious World Junior Meet.

Aneesh Gowda(3:57.99) won his heat with his personal best time while Aryan Nehra(3:59.36) came in at the sixth position in his heat of 400m Freestyle they finished 11th and 13th respectively in the overall standings out of the 44 swimmers taking part.

Aneesh had registered his personal best time bettering the earlier one of 3:59.66 which was set in October last year.


Only 8 swimmers make it to the finals with the 8th swimmer timing being 3:55.59.

Ridhima Virendra Kumar (1:07.71) finished 8th in her heats and 25th overall out of the 52 swimmers. She has a personal best of 1:04.40 but this timing was far off that.

Unlike the men’s 400m there is a SF lined up in this event but the Qualification time was around the 1:04.28 min and to make it to the Semifinals Ridhima would have needed to better her personal best.
