Remedy Rule does not make 100m butterfly top 16

Remedy Rule was not able to advance to the 100-meter butterfly event of the 2020 Summer Olympics in Tokyo, Saturday at the Aquatics Center. 

The 24-year-old product of University of Texas finished in 25th place out of the 33 swimmers that competed in the heats as she clocked a time of 59.69 seconds.

China’s Zhang Yufei, meanwhile, led the pack with 55.82.

Still, Rule impressed during her heat.

The 2019 SEA Games double silver medalist zoomed to second place following a huge swim in the second 50-meter to snag second place with 59.69 seconds.

Ireland’s Ellen Walshie won the heat after touching the pad at 59.35, just 0.33 seconds ahead of the Filipino. Hungary’s Dalma Sebestyen slipped to third place with 59.79.

The result was 0.14 seconds off her personal best of 59.55, which also happens to be the national record.

Rule will compete for her second and final event, the longer 200 butterfly, scheduled on Tuesday.
