Though the original entries list for the 2017 FINA World Championships included Singapore’s Joseph Schooling in the men’s 200 fly, we won’t get to see the Olympic 100 fly champ compete in the event after all. Schooling is absent from the current start lists on Omega timing.
Schooling swapped out this event for the 100 free last summer in Rio, so we didn’t get a chance to see what he could do in the 200 fly at his peak. His lifetime best is a 1:55.73 from 2015 SEA Games. This season, he registered a 2017 best of 1:56.45 at the Arena Pro Swim Series stop in Atlanta.
Schooling still has a handful of events to come at this meet: the 50 fly, 100 fly, and 100 free. Tonight, he’ll be competing in the semifinals of the 50 fly. He took down his own Asian Record in that race during this morning’s prelims, clocking in at 23.05 to lower his former best 23.25 and earn the 3rd seed for semis.
