Israeli national team swimmer Gal Cohen Gromi achieved the Olympic criteria for Tokyo tonight (Friday) in the 100-meter butterfly. The 19-year-old swimmer from Hod Hasharon set a result of 51.93 in the “Seven Hills” competition in Rome, three hundredths faster than the required time and an improvement of 12 hundredths to his personal best, which was achieved less than two weeks ago at the Israeli Championships. In doing so, Gromi joins Israeli champion Tomer Frenkel in this ointment, who also secured his place in the games.
Bony He said after the ointment: “It was a really good ointment, I felt very light in the water, the ointment really flowed in me and in the end I did what I did not do in the competition in Israel, I lowered my head properly with a touch, that’s what made the difference. “That’s how it feels. Especially now, everyone has come to cheer in the stands, and feel it, it’s a different world when there are people behind you who support you and want you to do it just like you, that’s really the most important thing.”
On the first day of the competitions, the battle for the premiere in the 100 breaststroke for men was decided, when Itai Goldfaden set 1: 01.07, only 28 hundredths of his fresh Israeli record, ahead of Chris Pichogin who set 1: 01.43. The struggle, as I recall. Was on the potential spot in the Mix Apostles to Tokyo, and now the decision passes to the team coaches who will decide the composition of the quartet. In this ointment, Ron Polonsky and Alex alone set a time of 1: 03.14 minutes.
