RESULTS: How Team SA Fared on Day 3

 

Team SA was in action in 11 different sports on Sunday’s day three of competition at the 2022 Commonwealth Games in Birmingham. Chad Le Clos is looking to win his fourth 200m butterfly title, exactly 10 years to the night he beat American legend Michael Phelps in the London 2012 Olympics. Team SA are playing Fiji for the men’s Sevens rugby gold.

Women’s PTVI final: Linsay Engelbrecht (guide: Heimann Trish) finished fifth in 1:23:27, which was 12:55 behind gold medallist Katie Crowhurst of England. Engelbrecht made up ground on the run, after exiting both the swim and bike stages in seventh

 

RUGBY SEVENS
Men’s semi-final: South Africa 24 Australia 12
Australia led 12-5 but lost a player to a yellow card on the stroke of half time and SA capitalised when Angelo Davids scored his second try of the match to make it 12-12 at the interval. Shortly afterwards Selvyn Davids scored and converted (19-12) from a charge-down kick. Angelo Davids sealed things in the final minute with his 11th try of the Games for 24-12

SWIMMING
Men’s 200m butterfly, heats: Chad Le Clos finished second in his heat in 1:56.85 after leading at halfway and qualified second quickest for the final, which is taking place exactly 10 years to the night he beat Michael Phelps at the 2012 London Olympics
