Schooling falls to teammate in SEA Games 50m butterfly


CAPAS, TARLAC — Joseph Schooling saw his three-cycle reign in the 50m butterfly of the Southeast Asian Games come to an end, Thursday here at the NCC Aquatics Center.

Schooling was dethroned by teammate Tzen Wei Teong with Tzen clocking in at 23.55 seconds — a .06 split second-lead over the Olympic champion.

The 24-year-old Schooling admitted that he didn’t feel too disappointed with the result.

“I tried my best but sometimes that’s the result. I’m not too disappointed obviously to see my teammate in front of me,” said Schooling.

Teong shared the same sentiment.

“I’m just happy that Singapore both got on the podium,” he said.

The Philippines, on the other hand, could not replicate its magical day one run that saw one gold go its way.

The quartet of Nicole Oliva, Jasmine Alkahldi, Xiandi Chua, and Remedy Rule won bronze, the only medal for the host in day two, in the 4x200m. The team clocked in at 8:15.46.

Singapore set the Games record with a time of 8:07.00, while Thailand placed second at 8:11.88.

Only three teams competed in the event.

Overall, Singapore added four more golds in its ledger.
