He did not make it to the finals at the FIFA World Championships
Trinidad and Tobago swimmer Dylan Carter crushed the national 100m butterfly record for the second time on Friday at the FINA World Short-Course Championships in Abu Dhabi.
However, his new national record of 49.87 seconds could only land him sixth in Semi-Final 1 and ninth overall in the competition.
With the top eight swimmers going into the final on Saturday, Carter was edged out by eight hundredths of a second.
Carter broke his own national 100m butterfly record earlier in the day when he clocked 50.22 seconds in Heat 5 of the event.
His record-breaking swim in the semifinals marked the first time that any swimmer from Trinidad and Tobago had broken the 50-second barrier.
Carter, 25, won a bronze medal at the World Swimming Championships in the 50m butterfly in Hangzhou, China, in December 2018.
He has also won medals at the Youth Olympic Games, the World Junior Swimming Championships, the Pan American Games, and the Commonwealth Games.
