Roland Schoeman of South Africa has qualified fastest for the Men’s 50m Freestyle – the most frenetic race of the Swimming meet, where competitors compete in a one lap, mad dash to the wall.

Schoeman swam a time of 22.47 seconds, just short of the Games record he set in Manchester.

Qualifying second was Canada’s Brent Hayden with a time of 22.52,  with Australia’s Brett Hawke in third with 22.72.

"I've just been laying around the last couple of days. It was good to get in and just get wet again," said Hawke.

"I'm very happy with the swim. It was a Heat and it was very comfortable."

Australian’s Ashley Callus qualified sixth fastest and Eamon Sullivan eighth – well placed for the semi finals to be contested later tonight, ahead of the Final on Tuesday evening.

"I'll just have a sleep and recharge for tonight. I felt comfortable and solid," said Sullivan.
