Chad le Clos won his big showdown with Dylan Bosch on the opening night of the South Africa Aquatic Championships with the pair among four swimmers to post Commonwealth Games qualifying times in Durban on Monday.

Olympic gold medallist Le Clos recorded the fastest time in the world this year to win the 200 metres butterfly final in one minute, 54.56 seconds (1:54.56).

Bosch, who broke the NCAA or American Universities’ record in the 200 yards butterfly just under 10 days ago, was second in 1:56.92 with both men dipping under the 1:57.03 qualification mark.
