Singapore swimmer Joseph Schooling has successfully defended his 100m butterfly Southeast East Asian Games title after clocking a time of 51.84s to win gold at the New Clark City Aquatic Centre on 6 December.
Fellow Singaporean Quah Zheng Wen finished in second place in 51.87s.
With their timings, both qualify for the 2020 Tokyo Olympics.
Schooling is the defending champion in the 100m butterfly at the SEA Games level, and won the gold in 2017 in a time of 51.38s, and also in 2013 and 2015.
The 100m fly gold was Schooling’s first individual gold medal at the Manila SEA Games.
