He made a splash in the men's 50m butterfly event at the Commonwealth Games in Galsgow, Scotland, matching the Asian mark and breaking the national record with a time of 23.43 seconds in his heat. Joseph Schooling also set a new national record when he swam the first leg of the men's 4x100m freestyle, clocking a time of 50.24sec to break Danny Yeo's previous mark of 50.51 set last year.
