Chad Le Clos Announced as Youth Olympic Ambassador for the Second Time


Chad follows in the footsteps of his self-declared hero Michael Phelps, who acted as a YOG Ambassador for Singapore 2010. The influence of Phelps has had a significant impact on Chad’s career as a role model and finally as a rival; Chad triumphed over the Olympic legend in London in 2012 to win the gold medal in the 200 m butterfly and be crowned Olympic champion. After missing out on gold in Rio in 2016, one year later Chad is now back in the number one spot after winning the FINA World Championships this summer in Budapest.
