Magnussen wins 100 at Australian trials
World champ Magnussen wins London Games berth at Aussie trials with 4th fastest 100 in history
By The Associated Press

ADELAIDE, Australia (AP) ' World champion James Magnussen swam the fourth fastest 100-meter freestyle ever to win at the Australian trials, clocking 47.10 seconds on Monday night to secure his place at the London Olympics.

The 20-year-old Magnussen said he was targeting Cesar Cielo's world record of 46.91, set at the 2009 world championships while wearing one of the high-tech boydsuits that now are banned in competition.

Magnussen, wearing only the knee-length swimming shorts, shaved 0.39 off his personal best set at the world championships in Shanghai last year.

Only Brazil's Cielo and Alain Bernard of France have broken the 47-second mark.
