World Cup points update: Hosszu, Le Clos primed to repeat with one meet left

Katinka Hosszu and Chad le Clos have just about clinched repeat victories on the World Cup circuit, leading their respective genders handily with just one meet to go.

Hosszu put up a field-best 132 points in Tokyo, and le Clos added 60. Each lead by a longshot in the overall points.

It looks like Daniel Gyurta will wind up second for the men, as his 295 are over 60 points up on third place, and that spot belongs to Tom Shields, who hasn’t competed in any of the third-cluster meets so far and seems doubtful to show up in Singapore this weekend.

Inge Dekker is second for the women, but the best battle will be for third place, where Alia Atkinson and Mireia Belmonte are tied at 255. Atkinson has been on a roll through the third cluster, but if Belmonte can get by Hosszu in a few races as she did in Tokyo, she could wind up stealing the third-place slot.

Once again, it was Le Clos and Hosszu taking the top performance bonuses for their genders. Hosszu has earned the top bonus, worth 24 points, at every meet so far this season.

Top Performances of Tokyo World Cup

Men:

  1. Chad le Clos, 200 fly: 1:49.20 (982 FINA points)

  2. Alia Atkinson, 100 breast: 1:02.86 (976 FINA points)
  3. Emma McKeon, 200 free: 1:53.15 (948 FINA points)

The full point standings are below. Before that, here’s a brief look at the points leaders of the third cluster. The top 6 in the cluster will earn bonuses starting at $50,000 after the Hong Kong event this weekend.

Note: athletes must compete in all stops of the cluster to qualify for cluster bonuses. That rules out Francesca Halsall (45 points), who didn’t swim in Beijing.
