South Africa’s swimming sensation, Chad Le Clos, is on course to win an unprecedented fourth FINA swimming World Cup Series title.

The 25-year-old Le Clos won the men’s 200 metres freestyle at the Beijing leg of the series to get closer to writing another piece of history.

He was favourite to win the men’s 200 metres freestyle having won three of the four races in the 2017’s World Cup series.

Australia’s Cameron McEvoy was expected to give the South African a run for his money.

Le Clos had a good start and was ahead at the 50 meter mark with the Australian in second place.

In the end it was the South African who won the race in one minute 41-point-8-1 seconds having led from start to finish with China’s Ji Xinjie second.

Le Clos will be favourite in the butterfly events at the two-day event in Beijing.
