Olympic medal is a realistic target for 'exceptional talent' Schooling, say coaches Lopez and Turner

RELAX, DUDE: Joseph Schooling (above) puts himself under too much pressure sometimes, says his coach Sergio Lopez.

It just keeps getting better for Joseph Schooling at this Commonwealth Games. On Thursday, he outsprinted Olympic gold medallist Chad le Clos of South Africa to win his 50-metre butterfly heat in 23.43 seconds, breaking his own national record and equalling the Asian record in the process. The 19-year-old swim sensation then clocked 23.48 in the semi-finals yesterday morning (Singapore time) to qualify for this morning's final. He continued to make waves at the Tollcross Swimming Centre in Glasgow yesterday evening when he broke Danny Yeo's 100m freestyle national record of 50.51. Swimming in the first leg of the Republic's 4x100m freestyle relay team, Schooling clocked a sizzling 50.05s to eclipse the previous mark set by Yeo at the Singapore National Swimming Championships last June.
