Madisyn Cox medals, Joseph Schooling takes 5th at FINA World Championships

However, the much-anticipated Fina World Championships men's 50m butterfly clash between the sport's quickest butterfly specialists proved a disappointment last night, as Dressel and Schooling failed to finish on the podium after placing fourth and fifth respectively. "This will spur me on even more to achieve better results for my next two events", he said. Schooling finished just behind United States swimmer Caeleb Dressel who clocked 22.89s.

Brazil's Nicholas Santos won silver in 22.79s and Andrii Govorov of Ukraine won bronze in 22.84s at the ongoing meet in Budapest, Hungary.

The 2016 Olympic 100m fly champion was slated to compete in the 200m fly heats today, but has reportedly dropped the event. "I am going to go back, learn from the race, and that is part of racing", he said.

The 22-year-old University of Texas undergraduate had qualified for four events at the world championships - the 50m, 100m and 200m butterfly, and the 100m freestyle - but decided before the start of the championships to scratch the 200m fly.

The move means that Quah Zheng Wen will be the only Singaporean competing in the 200m butterfly on Tuesday (July 25).

His biggest obstacle in Tuesday's final is China's Xu Jiayu, whose semifinal time of 52.44 was the fastest overall. I am disappointed with the result but I think it sets me up to have a good race for the rest of the meet.

The Anglo-Chinese School (Independent) graduate added that he got his first-race jitters out of the way with this race, and is looking forward to today's 200m butterfly heats. She remained in sixth following the backstroke, then blazed through the final 50 meters of freestyle in 30.45 seconds to edge American teammate Melanie Margalis for bronze by 11 one-hundredths of a second. "I'm just happy to get under 23sec", he said.

"I will put it (the 100m back heats) behind me and see what I can do in the 200m fly tomorrow".
