The South African star swimmer, Chad le Clos won the 200 m butterfly event at the 2017 FINA Aquatics Championships, coming before László Cseh, who received the silver medal. And a huge applause on the podium.
Even though this is not his first World Championship title, Chad le Clos can still rejoice at his victories. Just like his father, who is here in Budapest with Chad’s mother, and who teared up after his son thanked him for the victory.
But the tears were happy tears, and smile we can see on the photo below is the smile of happiness. The photo depicts Chad le Clos’ parents (from the left) and Sam Ramsay, the South African vice-president of FINA (on the right).
