Indian swimmers continued to dominate Uzbekistan Open Summer Swimming Championships in Tashkent but the Tokyo Olympics 'A' qualification mark remained elusive, on Wednesday.

The competition in Tashkent is an Olympic qualifying event but wasn't competitive as Indians won gold and silver medals with average performances in some of the events.

On Tuesday, Prakash, 27, won gold medal in the men's 200 metres butterfly event with a time of 1 minute 57.85 seconds, but it was slower than the Tokyo Olympics 'A' qualification standard of 1 minute 56.48 seconds.

In the men's 50 metres breaststroke event, Likith SP won silver with a time of 28.19 seconds while Danush S clocked 29.25 seconds to claim bronze.

In the women's 50 metres breaststroke, Chahat Arora won gold with a time of 33.80 seconds
