China's Sun Yang claimed the third Olympic gold medal of his career and first at the 2016 Rio Games by winning the men's 200m freestyle Monday.
Sun produced a fast finish to touch the wall in 1 minute 44.65 second, comfortably ahead of South Africa's Chad le Clos (1:45.20) and American Conor Dwyer (1.45.23).
Earlier in Rio Sun took silver in the men's 400m freestyle and became embroiled in a war of words with Australian winner Mack Horton regarding a previous ban the Chinese had served for doping in 2014. Sun revelled in his victory and threw his cap into the crowd in celebration.
