Quah’s performance in the morning’s heats, made him Singapore’s first male Olympic semi-finalist in swimming and he has another chance to race in the 100m butterfly on Thursday (Friday local time) which will also feature his team-mate Joseph Schooling.

In front of a packed Aquatic Centre, Quah clocked 1min 56.11sec in the first semis, just short of Belgian Louis Croenen who took the eighth spot in the final with a time of 1:56.03.

Hungary's Tamas Kenderesi was the fastest swimmer in the semis with a time of 1:53.96.

Quah had posted 1:56.01 in the earlier heats, a new personal best, but he was unable to better that in the semis.
