I swear I could hear the whole of South Africa explode in cheers and excitement as Chad le Clos took the Gold medal for 200 meter butterfly at the 2012 London Olympics, beating the favorite Michael Phelps of USA.
The margin was an astounding 0.05 seconds to a time of 52.96 seconds
. Chad le Clos finished with a great stroke at the finish to close the gap of more than a second that Michael Phelps had at the 150 meter mark. Surely he will be welcomed as a hero when they the Olympic team touches back in south Africa!
And to Chad, well done boytjie, well done!
