Dylan Carter, a swimmer from Trinidad and Tobago, won the men’s 50-meter butterfly event on Saturday at the third and final leg of the FINA Swimming World Cup 2022, which took place at The IU Natatorium in Indianapolis, Indiana, in the United States.
This victory gave Carter his ninth gold medal of the competition.
Carter, who was swimming in lane four, finished first in the competition with a time of 21.99 seconds, which earned him another gold medal. Chad Le Clos of South Africa crossed the finish line in second place with a time of 22.77, and Marius Kusch of Germany came in third with a time of 22.46. At the World Cup, Carter was one of the swimmers that was competing for the award for the best male swimmer.
Earlier in the day on Saturday, during the heats, Carter won heat eight with a time of 22.44, finishing ahead of Kusch (22.67) and Australian Matthew Temple (22.94). The time that Carter ran in the heats was the fastest time of any of the competitors.
Aqeel Joseph and Kael Yorke, both members of the Trinidad and Tobago swimming team, also took part in the heats of the 50-meter butterfly competition.
While Joseph’s time of 24.77 seconds was good enough for third place in the first heat, it was not fast enough for him to move on to the final. Even though Yorke won heat four with a time of 24.19, he did not advance to the next round.
Carter was proclaimed king of the FINA World Cup 50m backstroke on Friday, day two of the third leg, after he won his eighth gold medal of the World Cup. This victory earned him the title of “king” of the event.
Carter set a new national mark with his time of 22.72 seconds, which earned him the gold medal. He broke his personal record for the time it takes to complete the 50-meter backstroke in the time trial event with a time of 22.94 seconds, which he had established during his golden swim at the second leg of the World Cup.
He crossed the finish line ahead of two other Americans, including four-time Olympic gold medalist Ryan Murphy, who finished in second place with a time of 22.99, and bronze medal receiver Justin Ress, who reached the finish line in 23.07.
In the men’s 50-meter freestyle competition that took place on the first day of leg three, which was on Thursday, Carter not only won gold but also smashed his previous national record.
In the first leg of the World Cup, Carter achieved a new national record of 20.77 seconds after swimming out of lane four and stopping the clock in 20.72 seconds. This new time broke his previous national record of 20.77 seconds.
Ress finished in third place with a time of 21.23, while Australian Kyle Chalmers came in second place with a time of 20.81.
Carter was victorious in the 50-meter freestyle, 50-meter backstroke, and 50-meter butterfly events during the first stop of the World Cup in Berlin, Germany, from October 21-23. Both the 50-meter freestyle and the 50-meter backstroke were events in which he set a new national record.
During the second round of the World Cup, which took place from October 28-30 in Toronto, Canada, Carter maintained the prolific form that he displayed throughout the tournament.
He came out on top in the competition for the 50-meter butterfly, the 50-meter freestyle, and the 50-meter backstroke. In the 50-meter backstroke competition, he once again established a new national record.
