After the heats in the final morning Swimming session of the Games, the Australia team is well placed to add to their medal winning in the pool in the finals tonight.

Australia's Jessicah Schipper has qualified fastest for the Women's 200m Butterfly final in a time of 2:08.27. Compatriot Felicity Galvez qualified fourth and Terri Dunning of England swam a personal best time to qualify second.

Jessica said that she had enjoyed the whole experience and was looking forward to finishing her campaign with a 'big bang'.

“I just came to swim!” she reiterated.

The fastest qualifying time of all three of the Men's 200m Breaststroke heats was claimed by Canada's Michael Brown with 2:14.49, the winner of a bronze medal from the 2002 Manchester Commonwealth Games, who is fired-up for the Final.

Australian Stephanie Rice had the fastest time of 4:47.89 in the Women's 400m Individual Medley and said that she was hopeful for tonight’s final after an up and down swim in her heat.

“There's been so many amazing races and it's so great to sit in the stand and cheer the swimmers on. It's going to be great tonight and I'm so excited," said Rice.

Australian's Jim Piper, Brenton Rickard and Christian Sprenger have made it through to the 200m Men's Breaststroke final.

With his fast and furious action Jim Piper qualified fastest of the Australians. It will be a bitter sweet victory for Jim if he fills any of the three placings after disappointing disqualifications in the final of the 200m Breastroke at the Athens Olympics, and in the semifinals of the 100m Breaststroke in these Games.

Brenton Rickard will be well pleased with his result of 2:15.93, maintaining a strong lead throughout his heat.
