Last month at the Sette Colli Trophy in Rome, Sajan Prakash became the first ever Indian swimmer to achieve Olympic A qualification time in

men’s 200m butterfly. The 27-year-old had clocked 1 minute 56.38 seconds in the men’s 200m butterfly event which was better than the Olympic A qualification time of 1:56.48.

Nataraj was the second Indian swimmer to achieve Olympic A qualification time.
