With both U.S. defending Olympic champions Missy Franklin and Matt Grevers out, Day 3 proves to be the Australian backstroke show: 2015 World Champions in the 100m backstroke Emily Seebohm and Mitch Larkin look to prove their mettle on an Olympic stage. The 200m freestyle is more of a wildcard, with 2012 Olympic champion Yannick Agnel of France, 2015 world champion James Guy of Great Britain, China’s Sun Yang and U.S. star Conor Dwyer all in contention.
