Day 1

Bridget Coley finished 4th (out touched by. 07 for a bronze medal -  did not see the hard charging Brazilian from the outside lane) and Heather Maitland finished 7th in the 1500FR. It was Brigdet's 2nd fastest 1500 ever and Heather's 2nd best 1500 ever as well. Both girls noted that the sun was quite hot during the race and it was something that they were not used to. Coach Byron McDonald noted that they likely felt that they were overheating towards the end of the race -  the water temperature was cool but the sun  was at its hottest - something that these swimmers (particularly Heather who is participating in the Open Water 10km at FISU games) will have to get used to.

The action continues tomorrow. Follow the live results here.
