At South African nationals in Durban, the men’s 800m freestyle produced one of the highlights of the session when 19-year-old Matthew Meyer clocked 7:54.53 to rise to No6 on the current world rankings. He was 17 in 2015 when he last set a best in a straight 800m race, at 8:03.88. That was also the year Myles Brown clocked the national record, 7:53.97 now within Meyer’s reach. The other two highlights came from where you’d expect: Chad Le Clos, on 1:55 in the 200m butterfly; and Cameron Van Der Burgh, on 27.1 in the 50m breaststroke
