Schooling Beats Phelps to Qualify for Fly Semi-Finals

Local lad Joseph Schooling beat American swim-maestro Michael Phelps in the 100 metres butterfly heats to qualify for the semi-finals.

Schooling set a time of 51.41 secs, with his boyhood idol Phelps placing second a 51.60 secs timing that left him fourth overall.

Commenting on his qualification to the next round, Schooling said in his usual understated manner:

“It feels like a morning swim. Relaxed, easy.”

Schooling aside, our other local lad Quah Zheng Wen also made the semi-finals, after qualifying 16th with a personal best of 52.08 secs.
