Chalmers vs. McEvoy in Brisbane this weekend.
Katinka Hosszu wound up with just over $386,000 in prize money on the 2016 World Cup tour, closely rivaling her record 2014 haul.
For the 6th consecutive year, Hungary’s Katinka Hosszu has won the FINA World Cup title in runaway fashion, with Russia’s Vladimir Morozov getting his first win on the men’s side.
Hungary’s Katinka Hosszu finished her dominant World Cup performance with 5 more golds.
Morozov picked up 2 medals today, one of them being gold. His victory came in the men’s 100 IM, an event in which he’s the World Record holder.

Lowering the roof height and reducing seating are just two of the options FINA pitched to Tokyo 2020 organizers in an effort to maintain plans for an entirely new Olympics aquatic venue.
Katinka Hosszu led all swimmers in Tokyo with $14,500 in prize money, followed closely by Alia Atkinson’s $13,500.
Katinka Hosszu and Vladimir Morozov still lead the series and cluster points after Tokyo, but second-place swimmers Alia Atkinson and Daiya Seto each racked up big point totals and are in line for sizable cluster 3 bonuses.
After narrowing in on the 50 breast World Record last week, Atkinson finally had a breakthrough in today’s race.
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.
