South Africa: Gallagher Misses Out On Medal in China

Cape Town — South Africa's Erin Gallagher has missed out on a medal at the 14th FINA World Swimming short course Championships in Hangzhou, China.

Swimming in the final of the women's 100m freestyle out of Lane 1, Gallagher posted a time of 53.14 which was only good enough for eighth and last position.

Dutch superstar Ranomi Kromowidjojo took the gold medal in a new championship record time of 51.14, ahead of compatriot Femke Heemskerk (51.60), with American Mallory Comerford taking bronze (51.63).
