Swim Stunner: Manuel Fails to Make the Final in 100 Free
06/18/2021 1:45am

In the biggest surprise yet at the U.S. swimming trials, defending Olympic champion Simone Manuel failed to advance from the semifinals in the 100-meter freestyle Thursday night.Manuel, who tied for the gold at the Rio Olympics to become the first Black female ever to win an individual swimming event, finished fourth in the first semifinal heat at 54.17 seconds.She just missed a spot in Friday nights final when five swimmers went faster in the second semifinal heat, with Erika Brown taking the eighth spot in 54.15 two-hundredths faster than Manuel.Natalie Hinds and Olivia Smoliga were the top qualifiers in 53.55. Allison Schmitt, who already made the team in the 200 free, advanced to the final with the sixth-best time 54.08. Manuels failure to make it to the 100 free final means she wont be in the mix for the relays, either. She still has a chance to qualify for the team in the 50 free an event she took silver in as part of a four-medal haul at Rio.In the mens 200 breaststroke, Nic Fink made the Olympics for the first time at age 27, winning with a time of 2:07.55 in a 1-2 finish with club teammate Andrew Wilson.Fink failed to finish in the top two at either the 2012 or 2016 trials, and he had another heartbreak with a third-place showing in the 100 breast this year.Now, finally, hes got his long-sought spot on the Olympic team.Its something I cant really describe, Fink said. Relief is only the beginning of what Im feeling right now. Its a long journey to come here. Ive had so much support and help. Im so grateful for this opportunity and to come back after getting third in the 100.Wilson, who swims with Fink on the Athens Bulldog Swim Club in Georgia, earned a likely second individual event at the Tokyo Games with a runner-up finish in 2:08.32. Wilson also finished second in the 100 breast.Its really fun to see it pay off for Andrew and I, Fink said.Kevin Cordes, who made the 2016 Olympic team in both breaststroke events, came up short this time. He was a distant fourth, nearly 2 seconds behind Wilson.Its tough to see him not make it, Fink said.The U.S. team added another first-time Olympian when Bobby Finke of Clearwater, Florida won the mens 800 freestyle, an event that will make its Olympic debut in Tokyo. He covered 16 laps in 7:48.22, holding off runner-up Michael Brinegar 7:49.94. Ross Dant just missed an Olympic spot, finishing a mere 72-hundredths behind Brinegar in a thrilling finish.Follow Paul Newberry on Twitter at https://twitter.com/pnewberry1963 and his work can be found at https://apnews.com/search/paulnewberryMore AP Olympic coverage: https://www.apnews.com/OlympicGames and https://twitter.com/APSports

US Open Tennis Tournament to Allow 100% Fan Capacity in 2021
06/17/2021 8:48am

The U.S. Open tennis tournament will allow 100 spectator capacity throughout its entire two weeks in 2021, a year after spectators were banned from the event because of the coronavirus pandemic. The U.S. Tennis Association announced Thursday that all tickets for courts and grounds passes will go on sale in July.The years last Grand Slam tournament is scheduled to be held at Flushing Meadows in New York from Aug. 30 to Sept. 12. The USTAs decision to return to its usual number of people on-site is the latest step in a return to normal for New York and for fans of various sports as the world emerges from more than a year of COVID-19 restrictions.On Tuesday, New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo said many of the states remaining social distancing rules would be eased because 70 of its adults have received at least one dose of a coronavirus vaccine. The New York Mets announced Wednesday they will return to full capacity next week. A sellout crowd of 52,078 attended a baseball game at Dodger Stadium in Los Angeles on Tuesday night. The Indianapolis 500 on May 30 sold around 135,000 tickets, which is 40 of capacity at Indianapolis Motor Speedway. For tennis, the U.S. Open will be the first Grand Slam tournament to have full attendance since the Australian Open in January-February 2020 shortly before the coronavirus outbreak turned into a full-blown pandemic. The USTA held the 2020 U.S. Open with no spectators at all, significantly altering the atmosphere and the competitive conditions at an event where raucous crowds are a part of the scenery, especially during night sessions at 23,771-seat Arthur Ashe Stadium. More than 700,000 people attended the 2019 U.S. Open.The recently concluded French Open let more than 5,000 spectators into the Roland Garros grounds each day during Week 1, and that rose to more than 13,000 people by the end. The main stadium, Court Philippe Chatrier, was limited to 5,000 fans about a third of capacity for the singles finals last weekend.The All England Club and British government announced this week that Centre Court would be filled at 50 capacity when Wimbledon starts on June 28, with that rising to 100 by the womens and mens singles finals on the closing weekend of July 10-11. Wimbledon was canceled completely in 2020 because of the pandemic, the first time since 1945 that tournament wasnt held.
