Cheng Sopha splashes to fourth in Nanjing heat

Cambodia’s Cheng Sopha finished fourth in his heat of the men’s 50m freestyle swimming competition at the 2014 Youth Olympic Games in Nanjing, China, yesterday morning, his time of 27.58 seconds leaving him well down in 45th place overall.

Heat 2 was won by Gabriel Richter of Swaziland in 26.15, who himself was more than two seconds off the requisite pace to make the semifinals at the Nanjing Olympic Sports Centre Natatorium.

Track sprinter Sokha Panha Viriyak Vatey will next fly the flag for the Kingdom in the women’s 100m heats on Thursday night.
