There were many breaststroke swimmers taking part in the Men’s 100m event at London Acquatics Centre. Karnell prepared himself in the training pool and felt good for the race. When Karnell dived in at the start of the race, in the end lane, he looked very powerful and turned in third place at the 50m metre turn in 29.12 secs. The second 50m swim showed a few swimmers, including Karnell, who were having problems keeping up the speed limit. Karnell swam the second 50m in 35.85 secs.
