Belo Horizonte, March 8: Beijing 2008 Olympic swimming champion Cesar Cielo has set the fastest time of the year in the 50m butterfly during the Metropolitan tourment in Brazil.

The 28-year-old clocked 23.28 seconds to beat countrymen Henrique de Souza (24.19) and Felipe de Souza 24.34) in Belo Horizonte on Saturday, reports Xinhua.

His time eclipsed the 23.49 set by Frenchman Florent Maudou last month.

After the race, Cielo admitted he was surprised by the result given his almost-exclusive focus on freestyle training. Cielo added that the the result justified his decision to train at home instead of joining his tiol teammates at the Golden Tour in Marseilles. IANS
