Men’s 100 Free – 2013 FINA World Cup in Singapore – as reported by SwimSwam editor-in-chief Braden Keith
Vlad Morozov is neither the World Cup nor the World Record holder in the 100 short course meters freestyle, but he continues to flirt with the latter. He has been under 46 seconds at every stop of this year’s circuit, including Tuesday’s win in 45.67. The only of the six series where he’s been better than that, ironically, is the opening Eindhoven stop, where Australian James Magnussen walked away with the victory anyway.
American Anthony Ervin, one of just two on this stop of the tour, took 2nd in 46.48, and Australian Tommaso D’Orsogna took 3rd in 47.06.
