The start of something extraordinary

PR 84 - SWC 2016: Hosszu (HUN) and Morozov (RUS) steal the thunder in Doha

Hungary’s Katinka Hosszu (405) and Russia’s Vladimir Morozov (210) topped the men and women Cluster #2 rankings respectively, winning US$ 50,000 each, following the sixth leg of the FINA/airweave Swimming World Cup, which took place in Doha, Qatar, this weekend. There are also the overall leaders of the World Cup Series with 436 and 783 points respectively.

In the Qatari capital Hosszu added another nine gold medals (as well as four silvers) to her winning tally - repeating her Dubai (UAE) success only a few days apart.

Still in the women's competition, Jeanette Ottesen of Denmark maintained her great form and won the 50/100m free, as well as the 50/100m fly.

Alia Atkinson (JAM) triumphed in the 50m breast, while she also was the fastest in the 100m breast.

Among the men, the duel between Morozov and Chad Le Clos (RSA) continued but the Russian ended up having a more successful meet in Doha. He won four titles to Le Clos’s three and he also won the cluster (210-195) and holds a comfortable lead in the overall (436-387).

Japan's Daiya Seto was among the big winners in Doha as he claimed gold in three events, namely the 200m fly, 200/400m IM.
