FINA WORLD CUP DUBAI, UNITED ARAB EMIRATES

There’s no change at the top of the FINA World Cup point standings after Dubai, but Alia Atkinson has passed up Jeanette Ottesen in a spirited battle for second place in Cluster 2.

Ottesen outscored Atkinson by 3 points in Beijing, the first stop of the second cluster. But Atkinson blew up for 60 points in Dubai to nab second in the cluster. Ottesen still leads Atkinson by 11 in the overall series.

The leader, of course, is Katinka Hosszuwho hasn’t trailed in the point standings since 2010. She totaled a whopping 144 in Dubai, her highest single-meet total of the year so far.

On the men’s side, Vladimir Morozov is still the runaway leader. He outscored Chad le Clos by 18 in Dubai, leads by 45 in the second cluster and 79 in the overall series.

There’s just one meet left in the second cluster, with the top 6 cluster finishers in each gender earning big cluster bonus checks. We’ve bolded those in line for those bonuses in the standings below.
