Photograph: Stanislav Krasilnikov/TASS Tunisian teenager Ahmed Hafnaoui caused one of the biggest stirs of the Tokyo Olympics so far with a stunning 400m freestyle gold medal – but insisted his massive personal best was purely down to “hard work”. The 18-year-old summoned a thrilling last 50m to come home in 3min 43.36sec to overhaul the Australian Jack McLoughlin, who took silver, and American Kieran Smith, who won bronze.

What made the Tunisian’s performance even more impressive was that his PB at the start of the 2021 was six seconds slower at 3:49.90. And while he had improved that to 3:46.16 in the build up to Tokyo, he was still ranked just 16th in the field.

I saw the Australian guy from lane six, I guess in the [last] 200m. It was a great fight at the end. I’m feeling great. I am feeling proud.” But Hafnaoui’s dramatic improvement was questioned by journalists who asked how he improved so much after coming eighth in the 2018 Youth Olympics.

“I was surprised at first that I was a finalist,” he ahmed hafnaoui. “And now I am surprised I won a gold medal. I just worked hard with my coach, that’s it.” Hafnaoui also praised his fellow Tunisian, Oussama Mellouli, who returned from an Adderall-related drugs ban to win 1500m freestyle gold at the 2008 Olympics and 10km marathon gold at London 2012.

Mellouli, at 37, will also be back at these Games hoping to add a third gold medal of his career in the open water swim. “I have a great relationship with him,” explained Hafnaoui. “He wished me good luck before the race. And I wish him well in the 10k open water. He is a legend.

I wish to be like him one day.” Others have raised concerns about whether results at these Games can be trusted given the lack of testing during the pandemic, but when asked McLoughlin played that down. “We have had rigorous testing back at home, just like normal,” he said.

“And I think throughout the world it has been the same. Since we have been here we have had so many tests and the Japanese have done a really good job at drug testing everybody, so I don’t think there’s anything to say about it.” Elsewhere on the second day of action in the pool, there was delight for Japan as home swimmer Yui Ohashi won gold in the women’s 400m individual medley.

However, Britain’s Aimee Wilmott was left in tears after putting it all on the line and coming seventh. Yui Ohashi of Japan celebrates her gold in the pool.

“It’s gutting,” said Litchfield. “So close but so far. I’ve done everything I can these last five years, just not quite enough.” There was also no joy for Britain’s 4x100m women’s relay team, as despite setting a national record they finished fifth behind Australia, who set a world record of 3:29.69, second-placed Canada and the USA who came third. • Download the Guardian ahmed hafnaoui from the iOS App Store on iPhones or the Google Play store on Android phones by searching for 'The Guardian'.

That swim was the 7th fastest 1500 of all-time and makes Hafnaoui the 5th fastest performer ever, behind only Wellbrock, Gregorio Paltrinieri, Mykhailo Romanchuk and Grant Hackett. The swim also chops nearly 8 seconds off Tunisian swimming legend Ous Mellouli‘s African Record of 14:18.79, which was set at the 2014 Short Course Worlds when Mellouli took silver behind Paltrinieri.

Hafnaoui also broke the African Record in the 800 at the 800 meter split of this race. 1500m 25.94 14:10.94 26.96 14:18.79 Looking at the splits, Hafnaoui was consistently faster than his idol from start to finish, splitting 28 mids to Mellouli’s 28 highs over the first half of the ahmed hafnaoui, though Hafnaoui made a clear speed change at the halfway point where Mellouli stayed consistent. Hafnaoui dropped from 28.6s to 28.3s and 28.4s, which he held until the 1200 mark, where his splits started to creep up, though still ahead of Mellouli’s record pace.

Hafnaoui closed in a blistering 25.94, the fastest in today’s field to seal the silver medal. Hafnaoui will be following in his idol’s footsteps further, as he plans to make ahmed hafnaoui move to Bloomington, Indiana in the fall and compete in the NCAA. While Mellouli swam for USC in Los Angeles, he was an NCAA champion in 2005 in the 400 IM and 16 time All American for the Trojans, including individual All American honors in the 400 IM, 500 free and 1650 free.

With his silver medal here in short course meters, Hafnoui demonstrates an even further likelihood that he will be able to translate his long course success, which included a shocking upset win in the 400 free at the Tokyo Olympics, to the NCAA short course yards format.

He won a gold medal at the 2020 Olympic Games in the 400 freestyle at just the age of 18. International Competition 2020 Olympic Games The day 1 recipient of the Prelims All-Star award was Tunisia’s Ahmed Hafnaoui who swam a 3:45.68 400 freestyle to qualify in 8th place ahmed hafnaoui the men’s 400 freestyle final.

Tunisia is widely known for its Olympic legend and 2008 1500 freestyle victor Ous Mellouli but this Olympic final-qualifying swim from Hafnaoui was a solid step forward for the country. Hafnaoui became the second Tunisian swimmer to ever qualify for an Olympic final. Hafnaoui got his hand on the wall during prelims in a 3:45.68 which was just 0.14 seconds quicker than 9th place finisher Antonio Djakovic who hit a 3:45.82 Swiss record.

Hafnaoui finished less than a second behind the 4th – 7th place finishers meaning that if he can shave off a bit of time during the second swim, he has the potential to move up. If the field is at their best tonight, however, the podium will likely be slightly out of reach for Hafnaoui as 5 of the top 8 swimmers in the final have now been a 3:44.51 or faster. While Winnington and McLoughlin of Australia both missed the top heading into finals, they will still be competitive for the crown, having swum a 3:42.65 and 3:43.27, respectively, at Olympic Trials.

In finals, swimming out of lane 8, Hafnaoui did it again, not only winning a medal but swimming a perfect race and getting his hand on the wall first, winning a gold medal with a time of 3:43.36.Tunisian swimmer Ahmed Ahmed hafnaoui shocked the world on the first night of swimming finals at Tokyo 2020.

Hafnaoui, who is relatively unknown in the swimming world, triumphed in the 400m freestyle in Tokyo on Sunday. It took the 18-year-old looking at the scoreboard to see his time of 3:43.36 to realize he had won. It resulted in him letting out repeated primal screams as he hit the water, ripping off his swim cap, throwing himself onto the lane line and cheering. Hafnaoui started the race keeping up with the rest of the field before pulling away late to secure the win. Hafnaoui qualified on Saturday for the final by a margin of 0.17 seconds, marking the worst time of those in the field.

Swimming in Lane 8, the teen simply told himself to “go faster than yesterday,” and edged out Australia’s Jack McLoughlin by 14-hundredths of a second to clinch the gold. Team USA’s Kieran Smith took the bronze. WHAT A FINISH.
