Aussie swimmers hunting medals

THOMAS Fraser-Holmes, Ryan Napoleon, Stephanie Rice and the women's 4x100m relay team have progressed to final on Saturday night in London.



Fraser- Holmes was the first Australian swimmer through to a final at the 2012 London Olympic Games after qualifying fifth in a drama pack men's 400 metre individual medley that saw American superstar Michael Phelps scrape into the final in the eighth and last position.

Defending champion Phelps won his heat in 4:13.33, touching out 2008 Beijing Olympic Games silver medallist Laszlo Cseh by a mere 0.07 seconds.

Fraser-Holmes has now qualified for a final with his first Olympic swim although he wasn't overly happy with his time of 4:12.66.

"I wasn't please with that at all, I stuffed up a few things which is pretty common for my first swim," Fraser-Holmes said.
