5,000 fans roar as Santos and Atkinson breaks WRs, Morozov and Wang wins cluster

 Another big day for swimming in Budapest: a capacity crowd of 5,000 roared on the closing day of the FINA Swimming World Cup as Brazil’s Nicholas Santos brought down the 9 year-old WR of the 50m fly (21.75), then Jamaica’s Alia Atkinson bettered her own global mark (28.56) in the 50m breast. China’s Jianjihae Wang set a new World Junior Record in the 800m and as a bonus she won the second cluster overall. The men’s 50,000 US dollars went to Russia’s Vlad Morozov.

Sjostrom and Morozov lead overall but both were upset in pet events

Sweden’s Sarah Sjostrom and Russia’s Vlad Morozov are well in the lead in the overall – and Morozov is set to win the second cluster – they won a gold apiece on Day 2 in Budapest as well but were pipped for the title in one of their trademark events. The grand Aussie trio enjoyed another great session, Mack Horton, Emily Seebohm and Mitch Larkin all collected their second respective win in Budapest – just like Chad le Clos (RSA) and Felipe Lima (BRA).

Getting to know Budapest's Duna Arena

Only 15 months have passed since Duna Arena hosted the swimming and diving program at the 2017 FINA World Championships in Budapest. And already, the modern metallic venue on the eastern bank of the Danube River is in "legacy mode."

It doesn't mean that all 11 world records set there in 2017 have vanished. (In fact, eight remain.)

But it does mean that two-thirds of its 12,000 seats have been removed, reducing its capacity to 5,000.
