Schlanger into 100m freestyle semis

MELANIE Schlanger has qualified second-fastest for the women's 100m freestyle semi-finals.

Schlanger (53.50 seconds) eased through her heat to finish 0.13 ahead of Belarus's Aliaksandra Herasimenia.

Schlanger said she was saddened to see fellow Australian Cate Campbell withdraw from her heat due to illness.
