Daniel Zaitsev was eight in his 50m backstroke heat (25.76), again taking 26th plae.

While Alex Ahtiainen was 4th in his heat in the 50m backstroke, with a time of 26.43, this still only gave him an overall position of 40th.

Kregor Zirk opted to withdraw from the 200m freestyle heats, in order to focus on Monday's 200m butterfly.

Romanjuk and Aleksa Gold are also in action Monday, in the 200m medly heat and the 100m backstroke preliminary heat respectively.

Top swimmer Eneli Jefimova is not competing, having recently contracted a cold while training in Slovakia.
