London - Chad Le Clos continued his fine form in the pool when he posted the fastest semi-final qualifying time in the men's 100m butterfly heats at the Olympic Games on Thursday morning.

Le Clos won his heat in 51.54 seconds, placing him in pole position for Thursday night's semi-finals.

The 20-year-old South African, who won gold in the men's 200m butterfly on Tuesday, withdrew from the 100m individual medley final, which will be held later Thursday, in order to focus on the butterfly, his specialty stroke.

American Michael Phelps, the silver medallist behind Le Clos in the 200m final, was second fastest of the qualifiers in the 100m heats in 51.72.
