RYAN Napoleon was no match for the power of China's Sun Yang and Republic of Korea's Taehwan Park in the final of the men's 400 metre freestyle.
Napoleon finished dead last as Asian rivals Yang and Park put on a swimming clinic, with the Chinese swimmer just missing the world record on his way to claiming the gold medal.

Earlier, Alicia Coutts moved into the final of the women's 100 metre butterfly after finishing second behind race favourite US swimmer Dana Vollmer in the semi-final.
