Campbell sisters storm into worlds semis


KAZAN, Russia: Australia’s Cate and Bronte Campbell stormed into the 100m freestyle semi-finals on Thursday at the world swimming championships in their quest for more gold medals in Kazan. Having helped Australia win the 4x100m freestyle relay last Sunday, the siblings opened their individual campaigns with fast times into the evening’s semi-finals. Cate Campbell, the defending champion, matched Sweden’s Sarah Sjostrom, who broke the women’s 100m butterfly world record in taking gold on Monday, with the joint fastest time of 53.22 seconds. Bronte Campbell was right behind at 0.28secs back, just ahead of Olympic champion Ranomi Kromowidjojo at 0.63sec.
