Schooling’s golden swim named 4th best performance of 2016


04 Jan 2017
Texas, USA, January 4, 2017: The golden swim of Singapore hero Joseph Schooling at the Rio Olympic Games has been rated the fourth best performance of the year by the influential Swim Swam Magazine based in Austin, Texas. In their list of the top 10 swims of the year for the so-called Swammy Awards, the magazine puts Schooling at No. 4 for his Olympic gold in the 100 metres butterfly.

The article reads:

“The men’s 100 fly final in Rio was historic for a handful of reasons, but it was especially significant for Singapore. The nation got its first-ever Olympic gold medal in any sport this summer courtesy of Joseph Schooling in that race.

“In the first Olympic final of his career, Schooling was a man on a mission, taking on a stacked field that included Olympic medalists and World Champions. All eyes in Singapore watched as Schooling blew away the field, winning in 50.39 to clock the fastest time ever done in textile.

“Behind him, we saw a 3-way tie for silver between Olympic veterans Michael Phelps (USA), Chad Le Clos (RSA) and Laszlo Cseh (HUN), who have been rivals in the butterfly races for several years. All 3 swimmers touched in 51.14, marking the first 3-way tie in Olympic swimming history.”
