A proudly South African moment for Brad Tandy, as the Olympian added a bronze medal to the team’s tally during the fourth day of the 14th FINA World Swimming Championships (25m) in Hangzhou, China today.

In the fast-pace 50m freestyle, Tandy touched the wall in 20.94 to win the bronze, just 0.61secs behind Russia’s Vladimir Morozov’s golden time of 20.33. The USA’s Caeleb Dressel claimed the silver in 20.54.

Chad le Clos and Ryan Coetzee cruised into the final of the 50m butterfly, posting 22.34 and 22.75, respectively, while earlier on in the 4 x 50m freestyle relay final, Le Clos, Coetzee, Tandy and Douglas Erasmus ended in 5th place, clocking 1:24.14.

In other results, Emily Visagie finished the 100m breaststroke heats in 34th place with a time of 1:09.46.

Saturday’s second-last day of the competition will feature Rebecca Meder in the 200m individual medley, Ayrton Sweeney in the 400m individual medley, Erin Gallagher in the 100m butterfly and 50m freestyle, Le Clos in the 100m freestyle, as well as Tandy and Cameron van der Burgh in the 50m breaststroke.
