Le Clos captured gold in 1:49.10 ahead of Germany’s Philip Heintz in second (1:52.52) and Hao Yun of China in third (1:52.61).
Le Clos says: “I’m very happy. It was a good day for me, with two wins. I got some good results. After the first event I was a little bit tired. But despite this it was a good time for me.”
