Remedy Rule finishes 15th of 16 in Olympic 200m fly semis

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.

Rule also competed in the 100-meter butterfly event, placing 25th among 33 swimmers with a time of 59.68 seconds.

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.
