Nepali swimmer Gaurika Singh secured 1st position at the first heat of 100 meters backstroke at the Olympic Aquatics Stadium on Sunday.

The youngest athlete in the Rio Olympics finished her race in 1 minute and 8.45 seconds.

However, Singh’s personal best is 1 minute and 7.31 seconds.

Although she beat Evelina Afoa of Samoa and Rita Zeqiri of Kosovo to become first in the first heat, she failed to enter the next round.

Gaurika became 31st among the thirty-four swimmers from various nations that participated in the heat round. Only 16 players with best timing will compete in the semi-final.
