Start lists were released on Wednesday for the 2014 Commonwealth Games, where swimming is set to begin on Thursday, and Chad le Clos has backed off, ever-so-slightly, from his 9 early entries into this meet.
Specifically, he dropped the 400 IM and 200 backstroke, leaving him with just 4 individual events. His schedule will be:
- 50 fly
- 100 fly
- 200 fly
- 200 IM
- 400 free relay
- 800 free relay
- 400 medley relay
Le Clos is one of the biggest stars at this meet, and should be the biggest individual medal winner as well, even with a “reduced” 7 swim schedule. Dropping the 200 backstroke will free him up on the day before his best event, the 200 fly, where he’ll now have just a relay swim.
