Chad feels Phelps’s records are in his reach

JOHANNESBURG — Chad le Clos believes Michael Phelps’s world records are within his reach to break.

Apart from the 24 gold medals he accumulated, he also twice broke the short course world record for the 200 m butterfly event. His time (1:48,96) indicates that he would soon get to Phelps’s very fast 1:51,96 in the longer pool. The difference between the two pools is according to experts about three seconds, but Le Clos has not set himself a deadline of when he wants to break the record. publishes all comments posted on articles provided that they adhere to our Comments Policy.
