The 23-year-old  finished behind winner Daniel Carr of the US (53.50) and Brazil's Guilherme Guido (53.54).

This morning, Carter returned to the pool to compete in the men's 50m freestyle. He finished fourth in heat four in 23.06 seconds, trailing United States' Michael Chadwick (21.95), Brazil's Bruno Guiseppe Fratus (22.02) and Uruguay's Enzo Martinez (22.77).
