  • Joseph Schooling finishes fifth in 50m butterfly

Schooling had also finished fifth overall for the semi-finals on Sunday night, touching the wall in 22.93s to break his own Asian and national record set in the heats.

On Sunday, Van der Burgh pulled out of the 100m breaststroke heats, while Le Clos did not start in the men's 200m freestyle on Monday. Schooling finished just behind U.S. swimmer Caeleb Dressel who clocked 22.89s.

Schooling said: "Obviously disappointed with the positioning, time was fine".

Schooling finished overall third behind Ukrainian Andrii Govorov (22.92sec) and American Caeleb Dressel (22.97sec). He said in the mixed zone: "I thought it was good, pretty solid, two best times, a little long in the finish, really long, after I took that last stroke, I didn't really know where I was going to be". Just put this behind me and focus on my next race.

Schooling is hoping to reel in two gold medals, with the other event being the 100m butterfly, and is feeling confident about his chances, despite posting the fifth-best timing.

"I'm excited, the most important thing is to make top eight, which I managed to do and it's anyone's game tomorrow", he reiterated.

Spieth aims for a career Slam
Jordan Spieth has won the British Open after denying fellow American Matt Kuchar in a dramatic final-round duel at Royal Birkdale. Late Sunday at Royal Birkdale only the sound of an occasional gust off the Irish Sea and the steady beat of rain could be heard.

'It's a lot faster than I've been in heats.

"I learnt that my first 50m for my 100m fly is going to be good".

"I never like to lose and tomorrow's a new day". I definitely think I could have gone faster and easily made the semis tonight. "It really doesn't matter".

Schooling, who had targeted winning both the 50m and 100m butterfly at the World Championships, will be competing the 100m freestyle on Wednesday, along with teammate Quah Zheng Wen.

According to the Times Live website, Van der Burgh could reportedly receive some financial backlash from SASCOC for his decision since the 100m breaststroke is an Olympic event, while the 50m is not. He had done the same at the Rio Olympics en route to winning the 100m fly gold.
