Yes, the Olympic minimums continue to drop at the Spanish Swimming Open, held in Palma de Mallorca. By a tiny margin of 0.12 seconds, Arbidel González secured an Olympic spot for Spain in the 200-meter butterfly event at the Paris 2024 Games with a time of 1:55.66.

González achieved his Olympic place with a lot of emotion after tying with Miguel Novoa in the 150-meter step. With a new championship record, González expressed his dedication to hard work, saying, “In the end what is trained comes out, and we have worked hard.”

Emma Carrasco narrowly missed the Olympic minimum time of 2:09.11 by a margin of 0.38 seconds in the 200-meter individual medley event. However, she established a new championship record with a time of 2:11.11.
