After winning his first eight events, Singapore’s Joseph Schooling split 51.50 on the butterfly leg of the 400 medley relay, leading his relay to finish with a new record time of 3:38.25. Also on the relay was Khoo Chien yin, Quah Zheng Wen, and Lim Clement Yong, giving Singapore’s swim team their 23rd gold medal and 42nd total medal for the week.
**Update: Schooling swam the butterfly leg of the relay, rather than the backstroke leg, which is what was originally reported. Quah Zheng Wen led off with a 54.81 100 backstroke.
The first event of the day was won by Indonesia’s Gunawan Indra, posting a gold medal time in the men’s 50 breaststroke of 28.27. He was within .02 hundreths of a second off of his meet record from 2011.
Singapore’s Lim Xiang Qi popped a meet record to win the women’s 50 freestyle with a time of 25.59. It was an incredibly close race, coming down to .01 seconds. Quah Ting Wen won the silver medal with a time of 25.60, also swimming under the previous record.
Another record immediately followed in the men’s 50 backstroke. Quah Zheng Wen reached for the wall in 25.27 for the gold medal.
Malaysia’s Sim Welson Wee Sheng had a fantastic swim to win the gold medal in the men’s 400 freestyle, posting a record time of 3:53.97.
The final individual win of the night came from Tao Li, despite being challenged and called out by Nguyen earlier in the week. Tao was the only swimmer to finish under 1 minute with a time of 59.79.
