Chad le Clos and Cameron van der Burgh are at the helm of a South African squad of 16 bound for the World Championships in Budapest next month. Le Clos will defend the 100m butterfly title and rejoin battle with the likes of Olympic champion Joe Schooling over two laps at the showcase event and Laszlo Cseh, the Hungarian heading for a home defence of the 200m title, while Van Der Burgh will face Adam Peaty once more two years after taking silver behind the Brit in the 50 and 100m breaststroke.
Not easy to face the man who rocked the Olympic ranks with a 57.13 for the performance in the pool over 100m breaststroke at the Rio Games last year. Just ask China’s Yan Zibei. On the opening morning at the Japan Open in Tokyo, the Chinese champion clocked 59.29 in the 100m breaststroke for a ticket to lane 4 next to Britain’s Adam Peaty, on 59.6.
Chad Le Clos ended his South African nationals campaign in Durban with a 51.29 blast of a ticket to the defence of his world 100m butterfly crown in Budapest this July. The effort was equal seventh fastest of his career on a list topped by the 50.56 in which he claimed the global title in Kazan two years ago. At 51.29, Le Clos also found himself back where he likes to be: on top, for now that meaning the world rankings.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Obama AND Romney or Obama + Romney.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used.) For example, search for democrat OR republican to find results that refer to
Democrats and/or Republicans.
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
