Three wins each in France for Cameron and Chad

There were golden hat-tricks of success for South African swimmers Cameron van der Burgh and Chad le Clos in the Paris leg of the Fina/airweave World Cup series at the weekend.
Van der Burgh and Le Clos, who both won Olympic silver medals in Rio earlier this month, won all three of their respective breaststroke and butterfly events in France.
The former won the 50, 100 and 200m breast titles while Le Clos won the three butterfly events over the same distances.
Le Clos now lies second in the World Cup standings with 60 points, 26 behind leader Vladimir Morozov of Russia.
Van der Burgh’s times were 25.98sec, 56.42 and 2:05.12 respectively while Le Clos went 22.17, 49.06 and 1:51.25 for his victories in the L’Odysee venue.
The circuit now moves on to Berlin, Germany on Tuesday for the second leg of the circuit.
