    51. 74sec is the slowest time among the 16 qualified swimmers.

    He can, however, be proud of setting a new national record.

    Jackson, who also specializes in the 50m freestyle, said before his event that he was expecting a good start as he hoped to clinch a medal.

    “I have prepared very well and want to start on a bright note and advance to the next stage.”
