Le Clos and Hosszu widen points gap after Moscow World Cup

Chad le Clos and Katinka Hosszu continue to hurtle towards repeat World Cup points championships, as each finished as the highest scorers in Moscow and in all of Cluster 2.

Hosszu is dominating with her typical machine-like efficiency. The Hungarian now sits at 643 points after scoring 126 in Moscow. The closest to her is Inge Dekker, back at 252 points overall.

Le Clos has a bit more of a fight on his hands, as American Tom Shields had an outstanding second cluster. Le Clos leads by just under 60 points, sitting at 282 to Shields’ 223.5. Shields was actually leading the second cluster before le Clos exploded for 6 wins in Moscow.

The individual performance bonuses from Moscow (for the highest-rated individual swims of the meet) went to the following:

Men:

  1. Daniel Gyurta, 200 breast, 2:01.88 – 970 FINA Points
  2. Chad le Clos, 100 fly, 48.99 – 969 FINA Points
  3. Marco Koch, 200 breast, 2:02.07 – 965 FINA Points

Women:

  1. Katinka Hosszu, 200 back, 2:02.05 – 951 FINA Points
  2. Inge Dekker, 100 fly, 56.08 – 945 FINA Points
  3. Daryna Zevina, 200 back, 2:02.87 – 932 FINA Points
