José Paulo Lopes was eliminated from the Olympic swimming tournament in the 800 meters freestyle. The Portuguese swimmer took 23rd place in Tokyo.
Fourth in his series, José Paulo Lopes completed the race in 7.56.15 minutes, three seconds from the national record (set by himself in May, in Budapest) and far from the 7.41.28 minutes of Ukrainian Mykhailo Romanchuk, the best mark at this stage .
Remember that José Paulo Lopes had already been 20th in the 400 meters, setting a personal record. Despite having won this tie, the time of 4.16.52 minutes had not been enough to move forward either.
