Cate Campbell has overtaken Katinka Hosszu for the women’s World Cup point lead after the Jinan stop. Vladimir Morozov continues to lead for the men.

Campbell scored 60 points in Jinan to make up what was a 9-point Hosszu lead after the tour’s first stop in Tokyo. Campbell’s 60 points are the most scored in a single meet by any athlete so far this season. Hosszu scored 48 in Jinan, six fewer than she scored in Tokyo, and Campell now leads by 3.

Morozov has been rock-solid consistent on the men’s side. Scoring 48 points in both Tokyo and Jinan, he now leads by 9 points over American Andrew Wilson

This week’s Singapore World Cup will cap off the opening cluster. The points leaders at that point will earn $50,000 each as a cluster bonus, and the top 8 swimmers in each cluster will earn sizable bonuses. You can see the full point and prize money format here.
