After setting the 100 SCM fly WJR just yesterday, Japanese teenager Rikako Ikee has punched her name down for two more WJR’s– this time in the 50 SCM fly and 100 SCM IM.
Up until this point of the series, the 100 fly had been dominated by Jeanette Ottesen and Katinka Hosszu. In Tokyo, however, Team USA’s Kelsi Worrell took control of the race, picking up her first gold of the 2016 World Cup series.
To help mitigate the rising expenses across venues of all sports, a Tokyo committee is suggesting that the Olympic aquatic events be held in the existing Tokyo Tatsumi International Swimming Center, but not all involved agree.
Rikako Ikee’s speed shows no signs of slowing down, as the 16-year-old Japanese swimmer scored a new WJR in Tokyo today.
With just over $15,000 in prize money in Singapore, Katinka Hosszu has passed the $200,000-mark in money earned on the 2016 World Cup series. There are two meets yet to go, along with final points bonuses of up to $100,000.
