While competing on day 1 of the final stop of the 2018 FINA World Cup Series, Russian speedster Vlad Morozov knocked off his own World Cup Record in the men’s 50m freestyle.
After already notching the 4th fastest 100m IM performance of all-time earlier in the session (50.31), the former USC Trojan fired off a 50m free time of 20.48 for the gold. That effort shaved .01 off of his own WCR of 20.49 set just last week in Tokyo and checks-in as the 5th fastest performance ever, tying the 20.48 French man Amaury Leveaux notched way back in 2009.
