Swimmers Madelyn Moore and Kai Legband both failed to advance from their respective heats while Clevonte Lodge-Bean did not finish in the 400 metres during action at the Youth Olympics in Buenos Aires, Argentina, yesterday.

Moore placed sixth in heat five of the women’s 50 metres freestyle, clocking a time of 26.81 seconds to finish 21st overall. She missed reaching the semi-finals after finishing just behind Elinah Phillip of the US Virgin Islands whose fifth-place time of 26.22 enabled her to claim the final place among the 16 qualifiers.

Moore’s heat was won by Mona McSharry of Ireland in a time of 25.76 seconds, the fifth fastest of the qualifiers, as five swimmers advanced to the semi-finals from heat five.

Barbara Seemanova of the Czech Republic had the fastest qualifying time, 25.44 seconds in heat seven.

Legband placed 29th overall in the 100 freestyle after his time of 52.21 seconds placed him fifth in heat three. Lodge-Bean did not finish his race in heat four of the 400 metres.

Lodge-Bean was one of seven competitors in the race, which was won by Nicholas Ramey of the United States in 47.60 seconds.
