Junayna, who won nine gold medals, including eight records in the last national competition (hand timing), clocked 2:34.95s to touch the finishing line, and subsequently failed to make it among the top 16 for the semi-final by little more than 24 seconds

Like Mohammad Ariful Islam and Jewel Ahmed, Junayna Ahmed also disappointed in the18th Fina World Championship as the England-based Bangladeshi expatriate swimmer finished 32nd out of 33 in the heat of the 200m butterfly event in Gwangju, South Korea Wednesday.

Junayna, who won nine gold medals, including eight records in the last national competition (hand timing), clocked 2:34.95s to touch the finishing line, and subsequently failed to make it among the top 16 for the semi-final by little more than 24 seconds.  

Junayna took 2:34.14s to set a new national record in the National Swimming Championship in March this year through hand timing.  

Earlier, Jewel, who set five records in the last national meet, put up a poor display in the 100m backstroke event, having been placed 62nd out of 63 participants. 

Ariful also failed to surpass his personal best after finishing 78th out of 87 participants in the 100m breaststroke event.
