The most thrilling event of the final day of the 13th Singapore National Swimming Chapionship — the Men’s 50-metre freestyle race — was taken by dark horse Teong Tzen Wei. The 19-year-old swam a speedy 22.90s which was just enough to pip gold medal favourite, Indonesia’s Triady Fazuy, to the wall by 0.05 seconds. Fauzy had to settle for the silver with 22.95s and Darren Lim took the bronze with a time of 23.04s.

Roanne Ho left the competition in her wake the second she dove in for the Women’s 50-metre Breaststroke. It was a dominating swim by the athlete and she touched the wall first, just 0.2s off her personal best, in a time of 31.66s. She was the only swimmer to have gone under the 32-second mark as the second and third placed finishers, Vanessa Evato of Indonesia and Christie Chue, could only manage a 32.16s and a 32.89s respectively.
