Glenn Snyders has provided the highlight for Kiwi swimmers on day one of the London Olympics.
Snyders has broken the New Zealand record in the 100m breaststroke, his 59.78 seconds good enough to see him progress to Sunday morning's semi finals as the fifth-fastest qualifier.
The rest of the morning pool session ended largely in disappointment for Kiwis.
Matt Stanley missed the final of the 400m freestyle by two seconds, with a 3.49.44 well outside his personal best set earlier in the year and placing him fifth in his heat.
Natalie Wiegersma also finished well off the pace in the 400m individual medley, finishing in a time of 4.44.78.
The women's 4 x 100m freestyle relay team, consisting of Tash Hind, Hayley Palmer, Amaka Gessler and Penelope Marshall finished seventh in their heat in 3.42.55.
