Agnel wins 200m free, Fraser-Holmes 7th
05:01 AEST Tue Jul 31 2012

Frenchman Yannick Agnel emerged victorious in a star-studded 200m freestyle final at the London Olympics on Monday.

Agnel led from the start and pulled away from the field to clock one minute 43.14 seconds to finish ahead of China's Sun Yang and Korean Park Tae-Hwan who dead-heated for silver.

Australian Thomas Fraser-Holmes (1:46.93) was seventh while US star Ryan Lochte (1:45.04) was fourth ahead of German world record holder Paul Biedermann (1:45.53).

Agnel signalled his form in London with a brilliant final leg to steer to French 4x100m freestyle team to victory in Sunday's final.

He has now emerged as Australian James Magnussen's biggest gold medal threat in the individual 100m event.

Even without the presence of reigning champion Michael Phelps, who dropped the event after the US trials, the field assembled led some pundits to label it one of the races of the century.

Fraser-Holmes was delighted to just be a part of it, having also reached the men's 400m individual medley final on the opening night.
