SA’s golden boy, Cameron Van Der Burgh has done it again during the Singapore leg of the FINA Swimming World Cup at the OCBC Aquatic Centre on Sunday. Van Der Burgh’s time of 59.38 won him the 100 metres breaststroke title ahead of USA’s Kevin Cordes in 1:00.81 and China’s Li Xiang in 1:01.03. In other results, Michael Meyer came very close to a medal in the 200m individual medley when he concluded the race fourth with a time of 2:03.23 and followed that performance with a fifth place finish in the 200m backstroke in 2:05.44.
In the 100m butterfly, George Du Rand was eighth in a time of 55.20. The first day of the Singapore leg on Saturday was cancelled due to the weather condition, namely the high level of haze in the swimming complex. The 2015 FINA Swimming World Cup will be heading to Tokyo at the end of October before concluding in Doha and Dubai in November.
