Le Clos: ‘I have been in Turkey for 10 days, nowhere else’

CAPE TOWN — SA Olympic medallist Chad le Clos has cleared up the confusion surrounding his rumoured early disappearance from the recently concluded Fina World Short Course Championships in Istanbul.

Le Clos was believed to have abandoned the final day’s 200m butterfly in order to attend the BBC Sports Personality of the Year awards ceremony in London at which his father, Bert le Clos, was nominated for the Overseas Sports Personality of the Year award.

However, Chad took to Twitter to clear up the confusion, writing: “just to be clear! i have been in Turkey for 10days, no where else — i didn’t attend London with my dad, tweaked shoulder so had to withdraw.”
