“The reason is probably cultural. Right now if you’re a child growing up in Brisbane (where Widmer hails from) you will be pretty much influenced to swim freestyle and if you grow up now in Singapore you have your heroes in that (butterfly) stroke,” said the Australian.

“Our butterfly model is quite good and young kids will see Jo Schooling and they will try to copy him.”
