Turner: Danny could surprise

He has tipped Joseph Schooling to bring home Singapore's first Commonwealth Games swimming medal.

In fact, national head coach Ian Turner reckons the other swimmers can also give a strong show in Glasgow.

He has singled out 24-year-old national 100m and 400m freestyle record-holder Danny Yeo (above) as another to watch out for a big splash.

Currently in Surrey, London, on a staging camp with some of swimmers, the Briton said: "Apart from Joseph, Danny might do well as he has been training very well here.

"The girls under David (Lim) are also shaping up well and they are looking to race and establish new personal bests."

Yeo recently won the 400m freestyle event at the TYR South-east Asia (SEA) Swimming Championships, held at the spanking new OCBC Aquatic Centre at the Singapore Sports Hub, last month.
