In the 100m fly, Cheah posted a record 53.70 and broke the 50m fly Hong Kong record at the halfway mark in 24.60. Cheah went 53.95 in the finals for 15th.

Cheah went 22.76 in the 50m free for another lifetime best, missing the finals by 0.18 to take 13th.

Cheah’s 57.28 in his backstroke leg of the 4x100m medley relay broke another Hong Kong record.

Cheah will be competing in the 50m free at the upcoming FINA World Championships taking place in Barcelona.
