Chad Le Clos adds world title to his Olympic gold medal

Congratulations to our brand ambassador Chad Le Clos, who won the title in the 200-metre butterfly event at the World Championships in Barcelona on Wednesday.

After clocking a time of one minute 54.32 seconds, the 21-year-old South African said, “It is the first time I have won a world title so it is a landmark moment for me.” He added, “Also, I wanted to win this title to mark the anniversary of my Olympic title a year on.”

Chad memorably defeated his idol, Michael Phelps, in the same event at the London 2012 Olympic Games. He joined Phelps as a member of OMEGA’s family of brand ambassadors in 2011.
