Le Clos withdraws from final

2012-08-02 07:11

Bert le Clos has confirmed that his son Chad has withdrawn from the final of the 200m individual medley and will rather focus on the 100m butterfly.

It is believed that it will improve his chances of getting another medal if he withdraws from the event, Bert said, speaking to 5FM Radio.

Le Clos has sneaked into the final of the men’s 200m individual medley at the Olympic Games last night.

He finished fifth in his semifinal heat, claiming an overall joint seventh spot with a time of 1:58.49.
America’s Ryan Lochte finished first overall in a time of 1:56.13.

Le Clos on Tuesday won the gold medal in the 200m butterfly.
