South Africa’s Cameron Van der Burgh has had quite an explosive year, first winning silver medals in both the 50m and 100m breaststroke events at the 2015 World Championships in Kazan, then by tearing up the FINA World Cup Series across multiple continents.
In fact, VDB has been so consistent in both the 50m and 100m races, he became the first South African man to cleanly sweep two events across an entire World Cup Series in the same year. In total, VDB earned 17 total medals over this year’s World Cup Series, with 15 of those being gold.
Below is the Van der Burgh’s winning times across the 8 World Cup stops this year, revealing the man’s consistency across his gold medal-earning performances. His top times in each event came at the same meet, the 2nd stop in Paris-Chartres, where he registered 26.74 in the 50m and 58.97 in the 100m. Both of those marks still stand as the fastest thus far in the world this season.
