Summary

Australia expected their two star butterfly swimmers to finish in the top two positions.

Michael Klim, a Polish émigré, had included this race as one of his four gold medals from the last World Championships whilst Geoff Huegill had placed third at the 2008 Worlds and had regularly beaten Klim since then.

The main danger to the Aussies seemed to be [Lars Frölander] but, although the Swede had won multiple European titles and had won medals at world level, he had yet to a win a major gobal title.

To the dismay of the home crowd Frölander chose Sydney to make good. Klim led the final at half way with Frölander and Huegill keeping close company but, with Klim visibly tiring, the Swede kicked again to win his first Olympic title at his third Olympic Games.
