Moore fifth in 50m heat
Madelyn Moore failed to reach the semi-finals of the 50 metres backstroke yesterday at the Youth Olympics in Buenos Aires, Argentina, where she finished fifth in heat two in a time of 30.59sec.
Moore was 1.20 seconds behind the winning time of 29.39 set by a swimmer from Hong Kong, the eleventh-best time in the heats, which enabled the Chinese swimmer to claim one of the 16 semi-final places.
Moore finished 28th overall in the times from the five heats, with swimmers from Australia, Russia and United States clocking the three fastest qualifying times. Kaylee McKeown of Australia had the fastest time of 28.17.
Moore is scheduled to compete in her final event, the 50 metres freestyle, today. Kai Legband, the other Bermuda swimmer in the three-member team, is competing in the 50 and 100 metres freestyle. He was seventh in his 50 freestyle heat, and 26th out of 54 competitors, on Tuesday and will compete in his second event today when he goes in the pool for the 100 freestyle.
Clevonte Lodge-Bean, the third member of the Bermuda team, sees action in the 400 metres heats today.
