South African Olympic swimmers Roland Schoeman and Neil Versfeld were among the medals at the recent Paris Open meeting in France.
Schoeman won the 50-metre butterly in 23.61sec, touching ahead of Venezuelan Albert Subirats (23.81) and France’s Frederick Bousquet (23.83).
For his turn, Versfeld doubled up in the breaststroke events. “It went really well. I got second in the 200m (2min 13.75sec) and seventh in the 100m,” said Versfeld.
Versfeld was less than a second behind Luxembourg’s Laurent Carnol (2:12.90). Both upset the local favourite Hugues Dubosq who ended fourth in 2:14.21.
Based in Georgia, United States, Versfeld will be a busy man in the next few weeks. “I’m in Slovenia right now with the rest of the SA team doing a training camp.
“Then I head back to the US on Saturday to carry on with my training for a couple of weeks before heading home to swim the SA short-course in Pietermaritzburg in August.”
