Cameron's journey to Gold

2012-07-31 08:52

Cameron Van der Burgh talks about winning a gold medal at the 2012 London Olympics in the men's 100m breaststroke.

London – Chad le Clos will add to South Africa’s medal tally at the 2012 London Olympics - if bookmakers are to be believed.

Leading SA bookies, Ladbrokes, have quoted Le Clos as favourite for the bronze medal at 10/1 in Tuesday evening’s men’s 200m butterfly final (20:49 SA time).

American swimming superstar Michael Phelps has been installed as the favourite (8/11) to add to the 14 gold medals already in his trophy cabinet, while Japan’s Takeshi Matsuda (9/4) is backed for the silver medal.

Le Clos represents SA’s last chance for a medal in the pool, after Cameron van der Burgh set a new world record in winning Sunday’s men’s 100m breaststroke gold medal.
