Stasiulis books Olympics spot



Benjamin Stasiulis booked his place at the London Olympics on Friday when he set a new French record of 1min 56.39sec in the 200m backstroke.

The 25-year-old, who had already qualified for the 100m, improved the previous record of 1:56.64 set by Pierre Roger in April 2009.

It was also the second best 200m backstroke time of 2012, bettered only by the 1:54.02 of Japan's Ryosuke Irie.
