Chad le Clos sets 100m butterlfy short-course world record

Doha: South Africa`s Chad le Clos set a new world record of 48.44sec in the 100m butterfly at the World Short-Course Swimming Championships in Doha on Thursday.

The 22-year-old had already threatened the world record this season, just 0.08sec off Evgeny Korotyshkin`s mark at the World Cup in Hong Kong in September.

Le Clos cut 0.04sec off Korotyshkin`s record from November 2009 -- all the more impressive given that was during the performance-enhancing suit era.
