Swimming: National Championships to use knockout sprint format

Schooling endorses four-stage approach to 50m races, to be used at a Singapore meet for the first time

The 22-year-old will be racing in Singapore for the first time since his nine-gold haul at the 2015 SEA Games, and his presence at the OCBC Aquatic Centre will be made all the more exciting by the Mare Nostrum Monaco racing format that will make its Singapore debut at the meet.
