On Steep Curve Of Courage, Le Clos Tows Cseh To Unbroken Medal Run 2003-2016

Chad Le Clos is back on top over 200m butterfly - the defending champion down but not out - silver for Laszlo Cseh - by Patrick B. Kraemer

The cheer was the loudest of the week. In lane 5, Laszlo Cseh (HUN). Sling a rope round the girders, hold the rafters down. The defending champion, a popular chap at home (and if you ever have the pleasure to meet him, you’ll understand why) and among peers sauntered out to get his kit off, get his goggles on and stand in the space between Chad Le Clos (RSA) and the man still missing. Lane 4, Daiya Seto, of  Japan. Cue theme to Gladiator.
