Five days before her 19th birthday, Luxembourg's Julie Meyen took part in the Women's 100 metres Freestyle at the Rio Olympics in Brasil.

Swimming in Heat 3, out of 6, she came 4th in a time of 55.09 seconds. This was not fast enough, however, to see her qualify as one of the 16 fastest for the semi-finals. The fastest time was set by Australia's Cate Campbell (52.78 secs), who set an Olympic Record of 52.71 seconds in the semi-finals. The final is scheduled to take place on Friday.
