Watch Vlad Morozov Wrap Up 2 World Cup Records In 1 Night


27-year-old Vlad Morozov demonstrated once again why he won the FINA World Cup Series title last year, setting himself up nicely to potentially repeat the performance for the 2019 season.

After impressive racing already through the first 2 stops of Tokyo and Janin, Morozov had an especially stellar session on night 2 at the OCBC Aquatic Centre. The former USC Trojan collected 2 gold medals while also registering 2 new World Cup Records.

Following up on his 47.99 100m free from last week, Morozov made an even more convincing dip into sub-48 second territory with a quick 47.88 time to take gold in Singapore. Splitting 22.76/25.12, Morozov’s renewed taste for 100m free speed rendered the only time under the 48 barrier in the field, overtaking his own World Cup Record of 47.99 referenced above. In fact, his time would have tied American Blake Pieroni for 4th place in the final at this year’s World Championships.

Morozov crushed a winning 50m backstroke time of 24.40 earlier in the session to slice .03 off of his own World Cup Record he set back in 2018 in Kazan but matched last week as well in Jinan.
