Le Clos, Shields Tie For Hong Kong High Points

2017 FINA WORLD CUP – HONG KONG

The men’s point race couldn’t have been closer at the Hong Kong World Cup, with Tom Shields and Chad le Clos tying at 75 points apiece.

Le Clos outdid Shields in total medals, taking 3 gold and 3 silver. Shields only won a single event, and supplemented that with 3 silvers and two bronze. But that one win was the 200 fly, which Shields won over le Clos and in which both men put up top-3 performances in FINA points. Shields’ swim held up as the best male FINA point swim of the weekend, earning him 24 extra points. Le Clos’ FINA point total was 3rd overall, netting him 12 extra points.

On the women’s side, Katinka Hosszu went a perfect 6-for-6 and won the top FINA point performance bonus. Still, that was only enough to outscore Sarah Sjostrom (5 gold, 1 silver, 2nd performance bonus) by 9 total points, and Sjostrom still leads the series by a wide margin.
