London - South Africa swimming star Chad le Clos will in all likelihood have the chance to register Team SA’s first medal at the 2012 London Olympics.
Le Clos, who will be making his Olympic debut in London, will contest the 400m individual medley on the opening night of the swimming at the Aquatics Centre in the Olympic Park, on Saturday, July 28.
Le Clos, 20, will however have to contend with star duo Michael Phelps and Ryan Lochte who are favoured to finish 1-2 for perennial swimming powerhouses, the USA.
Should Le Clos fail in his bid to bag a medal, the wait for the honour of being SA’s first medal winner since Khotso Mokoena’s silver at the Beijing Olympics in 2008 will fail to Cameron van der Burgh in the 100m breaststroke on Sunday, July 29.
