More gold for Chad

South Africa’s Chad le Clos started the Berlin leg of the FINA/Arena Swimming World Cup on a high note by claiming another gold medal in Saturday’s finals.

The Durbanite’s fast start in the 200-metre butterfly won him the title in a time of 1min 50.15sec, once again beating Japan’s Hidemasa Sano who ended with a time of 1:50.58.

The bronze medal went to Britain’s Michael Rock in 1:54.07.

Sunday’s final day of the Berlin leg will see Le Clos in action in the 200m freestyle, 100m butterfly and the 200m individual medley races.

Le Clos will be joined by fellow South African Jessica Pengelly in the next leg of the FINA/Arena Swimming World Cup Series which will take place in Singapore (4-5 November), followed by Beijing (8-9 November) with the final leg being held in Tokyo (12-13 November).
