Joseph Schooling won his country’s first ever swimming Olympic medal, finished the race first clocking a time of 50.39 seconds to set a new Olympic Record breaking the previous record of Michael Phelps of 50.58 seconds set in Beijing in 2008.

Michael Phelps had to settle for a silver medal ending up in a three-way deadheat for silver with South Africa’s Chad le Clos and Laszlo Cseh of Hungary, 0.75s behind Schooling’s winning time.

Michael Phelps, who was denied a fourth successive gold in the 100m butterfly by Schooling, will end his Olympic career this time around.

“This is it. I’m not doing it. I swore in London I wasn’t coming back but this is final,” Michael Phelps said.
