Internet Desk: The two Indian swimmers that were competing at the Rio Olympics, Sajan Prakash and Shivani Kataria, had to settle with only their heats as competition time. Both swimmers, as expected, made an early exit from the Games and have no competition left.

In the women’s 200m freestyle, Shivani was second in her heats but didn’t qualify on the basis of other classification points of swimmers from other heats. She finished 28th out of the total 29 swimmers.

In the men’s 200m butterfly heats, Sajan finished a disappointing fourth out of five swimmers and didn’t come close to qualifying for the finals. In the end, Sajan finished 41st amongst the 43 swimmers on the basis of his timings. Sajan clocked 1 min 59.37 secs in his heat and failed to qualify for the next round.
