The 2020 Russian Swimming Cup Finals are officially in the books, and the final day did not disappoint.
Russia’s Kliment Kolesnikov is set to take on the men’s 100m free/100m IM double to close out his European Short Course Championships.
Anastasia Fesikova (above) defended her Russian title in the 50 back, while Oleg Kostin took out the Russian Record in the 50 fly.
