Tayla Lovemore wins two medals

Tayla Lovemore claimed two medals and set a new national record during the last leg of the Fina Swimming World Cup in Singapore over the weekend.

She raced to a new South African 50m butterfly record to earn the bronze medal in 25.54 and chopped 0.22s off the previous record she posted at the Budapest leg of the Series.

Lovemore went one better in the 100m butterfly final on Saturday where she finished second behind series winner Sarah Sjostrom.

Sjostrom won the race in 55.73, to Lovemore’s time of 56.95, while China’s Xintong Ling rounded off the podium in 58.29.

Rio Olympian Douglas Erasmus featured in the men’s 50m freestyle where he finished in eighth place in a time of 21.97, while Justin Kraatz narrowly missed out on spots in the 50m backstroke final, finishing in 10th place during the morning heats in 24.69.
