After the tour’s opening Paris stop, Vlad Morozov and Katinka Hosszu lead the points and money lists. Morozov broke the first world record of the series in the 100 IM in Paris. Alia Atkinsonwho is second in women’s points, tied a world record in the 100 breast.

The top swimmers in the points will all be competing in Berlin, with the start lists looking very similar to those in Paris.

She’s chased by Atkinson, plus Russian duo Yulia Efimova and Daryna Zevina and Australian pair Emily Seebohm and Madison Groves, among others.

Morozov is entered into 4 races: the 100 IM, 50 free, 100 free and 100 breast.

On the men’s side, he’ll be joined by Australian world champion backstroker Mitch Larkin, defending series champ Cameron van der Burgh2014 series champ Chad le Clos and perhaps Great Britain’s Ben Proud, who was a no-show after entering Paris but does appear on the start lists in Berlin.

I am surprised there aren’t more Germans entered. So few entries…the atmosphere must be poor. FINA is pouring all this money into the circuit ….when will they realize it is a waste. Maybe they should use the money for drug testing?

The German swimmers aren’t in their best shape this is the cause, not the athmosphere.

Why doesn’t Hosszu just swim everything?

She swims whatever Shane tussup wants her to swim

100 breast is just before the 100 fly, and 50 free is just after the 200IM.

Is it too late for David Nolan to hop on a flight for the next few of these? So many events in his wheelhouse that are not that deep. I’d think he’d break even on airfare after day one and any other top three places would be profit. Trying to think of other post-grad/pro/national teamers or similar who’d be well-suited to make some money here.
