Summary

Rafał Szukała of Poland might have been world champion but it was clear that

the two best in the world in this event were Denis Pankratov of Russia and Scott Miller of Australia. The two proved this beyond a doubt by being the only two to qualify for the final by swimming under 53 seconds in the heats.

Pankratov blitzed the field in the first 50 metres while Miller floundered down in sixth place.

The Australian picked up his pace in the second half and moved through the field up to second place.

The Russian could not be caught for gold and he finished in 52.27 to take 0.05 secs off his own world record. Silver medalist Miller set the third fastest time ever but still finished a quarter of a second down on Pankratov. Another Russian, [Vladimir Kulkov] finished third. This victory completed the butterfly double for Pankratov
