Dylan Carter was placed as a reserve competitor for the 50m backstroke final at the 14th FINA World Swimming Championships in Hangzhou, China. The final will take place today.
Carter got past the heats in the backstroke, placing fourth in heat five of the discipline, but his time of 23.19 was not enough to get past German Christian Diener (23.18) for the final qualifying spot.
Carter still has two chances to bring home FINA silverware, as he is set to compete in the 50m butterfly today and the 100 m freestyle on Saturday.
The FINA World Swimming Championships concludes on Sunday.
