10. He needs to swim (fast, fastly) in order to beat the champion.

The GMAT club grammar book says it should be "fastly" whereas I thaught fastly is not a correct adverb.
Has anybody any info on that?

As per my understanding, the correct usage is 'fast'.. fastly becomes an adverb and not required here
