Johannesburg - South African swimming star Chad le Clos made a clean sweep of the butterfly events and threw in the 200m backstroke gold for good measure on the final day of the second leg of the Fina World Cup series in Paris on Sunday.
Cameron van der Burgh also struck gold winning the 100m breaststroke while Myles Brown once again had to be content with the silver medal, this time in the 200m freestyle.
Le Clos and Van der Burgh have been on fire in the pool since the Fina World Championships in Kazan, once again dominating their respective events.
The 23-year-old Le Clos made a clean sweep of the butterfly events adding the 100m gold to those he won in the 50m and 200m from the previous day.
He continued his blistering form in the 100m butterfly, posting a time of 51.04 to win the race.
American Tom Shields touched behind Le Clos in 51.27 with compatriot Tim Phillips bagging bronze in 52.10.
Le Clos then showed off his versatility adding the 200m backstroke gold to his four-medal haul at the meet.
He posted a time of 1:57.81 as Keita Sunama of Japan touched in second place in 1:58.57 while Australia’s Ashley Delaney took third in 1:59.24.
Following a similar script from the first day, Van der Burgh left the competition in his wake touching first with a time of 58.97.
His nearest rival, Nic Fink of the United States, posted a time of 1:00.00 for second place while his countryman Cody Miller grabbed third in 1:00.21.
Rounding off South Africa’s medal haul in France, Brown finished the gala with his second silver medal, adding the 200m freestyle second place to that from the 400m freestyle from the previous day.
Brown was pipped by Daniel Smith of Australia who clocked 1:46.50 with Brown following in 1:47.55 and France’s Jeremy Stravius in third with 1:48.11.
