Swimnews Online berichtte het volgende:
The heats of the 100m breaststroke, British champion Chris Cook, one of only seven men to race under the minute, scraped into the semi-finals in 15th place, on 1:00.71, a time a tenth of a second away from what it took to win a medal in 2004 and would have granted him silver in Sydney 2000. Leading the way into the Beijing semi-finals was Alex Dale Oen, of Norway, a nation that has yet to celebrate an Olympic champion in the pool, in an Olympic record of 59.41. If he was the first man to race inside a minute in Olympic waters, then four others followed immediately after.
