From our day 3 finals recap:

The results were highlighted by 19-year old American-trained Joseph Schooling, who broke Games Records in both the 50 free and 200 fly to bring his title tally to four on the meet.

His day started with a 22.47 in the men’s 50 free to beat out Thailand’s Napat Wesshasartar (23.08) and Indonesia’s Triady Fauzi Sidiq (23.11). The swim for Schooling broke the six-years old Meet Record of 22.62 done by Daniel Coakley of the Philippines; as well as a 33-year old Singapore National Record of 22.69 set by Ang Peng Siong in 1982.

That old record by Siong was done to win the 1982 U.S. Championships, and that year was the world’s fastest time. He was an NCAA Champion in the 50 yard free, but was never able to contest Olympic gold, as the event was not added to the schedule by the IOC until 1988.

Schooling now already owns the Singapore National Records in the 50, 100, and 200 long course meter freestyles from this meet alone (where he says he is “winging it” on the freestyle races), and he wasn’t done for the day yet.

Schooling came back later in the day in his first swim of one of his ‘pet events,’ the 200 fly, and broke another Singapore national Record.

This time, he touched in 1:55.73, which broke his own National standard of 1:56.27 from the 2013 World Championships; as well as his 2011 Meet Record of 1:56.67.

The time moved Schooling to 7th in the 2015 World Rankings.

Looks like Quah was making up some good ground on the final lap of that 200m fly. Maybe he’ll give Schooling a run for his money in years to come. Schooling took that race out to fast IMO, but good time none the less.
