Several of the best swimmers from around the globe were in Hong Kong this weekend, as they gathered for the final stop of the 2016 FINA World Cup series. Hungary’s Katinka Hosszu finished her dominant World Cup performance with 5 more golds.
On the final day of competition, Hosszu brought in 2 IM victories, swimming to a 58.21 in the 100 IM and a 4:28.50 in the 400 IM. She also took home gold medals from the 100 back (56.30), 200 fly (2:06.09), and 400 free (4:05.31).
Hosszu picked up a 6th medal in the 100 free, where she hit the wall in 52.76 for silver behind Denmark’s Jeanette Ottesen (52.46). Ottesen went on to claim double gold with her 25.65 victory in the 50 fly.
On the men’s side, points leader Vlad Morozov picked up his final gold in the 50 free. In that race, he posted a 21.26 to get to the wall ahead of British sprinter Ben Proud (21.33) and South Africa’s Chad Le Clos (21.45) who held 2nd in the overall points battle. Le Clos won the 100 fly earlier in the session, breaking 50 seconds with his 49.52.
The Ukraine’s Mykhailo Romanchuk completed his sweep of the 1500 free at all 3 stops of the final cluster. Today, he came within 3 seconds of his own World Cup record, winning the race in 14:18.53
