In the men’s 100-meter freestyle, he simply wasn’t quite quick enough. Australian up-and-comer Kyle Chalmers denied Adrian of defending his Olympic gold medal in the men’s 100 free. Chalmers began to take over the lead in the final 50 and won in 47.48. Pieter Timmers from Belgium ended 2nd in 47.80.
However Adrian would not leave from the pool empty-handed. The 27-year-old gotten the bronze medal in 47.85. His time was 0.33 seconds less quickly at the 2012 London Games, in which he won the gold medal by 0.01 seconds.
“I’m surely glad to have one more medal, pleased to have two finals under my strip and appear away with 2 medals so far,” Adrian stated, talking about the gold that he won as a part of the men’s 4x100 freestyle on Sunday night.
