Remedy Rule bowed out of the 2020 Summer Games’ 200-meter butterfly competition after finishing in 15th place in semifinals, Wednesday at the Olympic Aquatics Centre.
The 24-year-old clocked in at 2:12.89 to finish last in heat two.
Placing as 16th is Honduras’ Julimar Avila Mancia.
Topping the field is China’s Zhang Yufei with a time of 2:04.89.
Also advancing to the finale are USA’s Hali Flickinger, Hungary’s Regan Smith, China’s Yu Liyan, Australia’s Brianna Throssell, ROC’s Svetlana Chimrova, and Great Britain’s Margaret Thomas.

The Filipino-American has hinted that this will be her last tournament, saying that she wants to focus on her studies.
“My identity is intertwined with swimming and although I won’t be competing anymore post Tokyo, swimming will always be a part of my life. I am who I am today because of swimming,” she told Swimming World Magazine’s David Rieder.
