Morozov, Hosszu Bolster World Cup Point Leads In Beijing

2016 FINA WORLD CUP – BEIJING

Vladimir Morozov and Katinka Hosszu continued to expand their leads over the fields in FINA World Cup points at the tour’s 4th stop in Beijing this weekend.

Morozov earned 81 points and Hosszu 117 to outpace the rest of the fields in their respective genders.

With Hosszu largely in the driver’s seat to win her 6th consecutive series title, the more interesting race is currently on the men’s side. Defending series champ Cameron van der Burgh did not compete in Beijing and has fallen to 5th in series points. Morozov topped closest challenger (and 2014 series champ) Chad le Clos by 27 in Beijing, and the two sit atop the points in Cluster 2.

Also making a run was Japan’s Daiya Setowho didn’t swim the tour’s first cluster. He scored 36 points in Beijing alone and has rocketed to 15th overall.

For the women, Hosszu outscored Jeanette Ottesen by 60, and Ottesen herself only scored 57. It was Hosszu, Ottesen and Alia Atkinson (54) who clearly dominated on the women’s side, and they sit 1-2-3 in points for the tour and the cluster.

Another Japanese swimmer made a splash in Beijing: Rie Kaneto scored 36 and has jumped into the top 10 overall, nearly matching her point total from all three 1st cluster meets in a single Beijing meet. Kaneto also nabbed the biggest FINA point bonus of the meet on the women’s side, while Morozov took that honor for the men.

And Vlad the “missing positives” Morozov retains his lead. No surprises there. With FINA in Russias pocket he probably isn’t even being tested this year.

He looks turbo charged. Test him.

Why bother .Only something like 5 tested positive in Rio & who believes that ?
