Chad Le Clos, the South African Olympic gold medallist and swimming world champion, visited the luxurious OMEGA Boutique at the Landmark Mall in Doha, Qatar in his role as a global OMEGA brand ambassador.
Named the Best Male Swimmer of the Year by swimming’s international governing body (FINA), Chad competed in the Swimming World Championships (25m) from 3 to 7 December, setting a world record in the 100m butterfly event and becoming the first athlete to win gold medals in all three butterfly competitions (50m, 100m and 200m) at a single short course world championships event.
The popular young swimmer posed for photographs with VIP guests at the flagship Omega Boutique in Qatar. He also met with media to discuss recent successes and autographed an OMEGA Planet Ocean watch box.
On his recent achievements, Chad Le Clos said: "It was great to participate in the FINA World Swimming Championships last week and I'm proud of my accomplishments, especially becoming the first swimmer to complete a hat-trick in the butterfly events. As an ambassador for Omega I know too well that timing is essential to doing well in this sport and staying on top.”
Stephen Urquhart, President of OMEGA, said: “Our flagship store at the Landmark Mall in Doha is an important part of our brand’s international retail network and offers the perfect setting to showcase the world of Omega to our customers here in Qatar.”
He added: “We are proud to be associated with Chad as he has consistently demonstrated that not only is he a remarkable swimmer, but also a tireless advocate for swimming and an inspiration to young swimmers around the world.”
Chad Le Clos became an OMEGA brand ambassador in 2011. Chad made a strong impression on OMEGA at the inaugural Youth Olympic Games in Singapore in 2010 when he collected five medals.
