MANILA, Philippines – Filipino swimmer Remedy Rule failed to advance to the semifinals of the women’s 100-meter butterfly at the 2020 Tokyo Olympics on Saturday at the Tokyo Aquatic Center.
Rule finished with a time of 59.68 seconds in the heats, but it was not enough to place her in the penultimate round of the competition with only the top 16 swimmers qualifying for the semi-finals.
The 24-year-old from the University of Texas was 25th out of 33 swimmers in the playoffs.
China’s Zhang Yufei placed and Australian Emma McKeon finished first in the heats with the two swimmers finishing with a time of 55.82 seconds in Series 5.
Rule, the Philippine record holder in the 100m butterfly, competes again in the 200m fly event next week.
