Rapsys' record lifts Day 3 of Singapore SWC

SINGAPORE – Two World Cup records fell on the third and final day of the Singapore Swimming World Cup.

First, in the morning preliminaries, Katinka Hosszu of Hungary broke her own World Cup record in the 200m medley, lowering the mark to 2:08.15 (which was 46 hundredths of a second faster than her previous record set in 2015). The points she claimed for the effort, she said, were crucial to earning the $50,000 (US) awarded at the end of the night to the female winner of “Cluster 1” of the World Cup circuit.

Morozov on fire on Day 2 of Singapore SWC

SINGAPORE – Although Day 2 of the Singapore Swimming World Cup was supposed to mark Joseph Schooling’s homecoming, it was Vladimir Morozov who stole the show.

The 27-year-old Russian lowered two of his own World Cup records (in the 50m backstroke and 100m freestyle) to remain undefeated in those events on the 2019 circuit.  He did the same thing on Thursday in the 50m freestyle, which means he will leave Singapore with three World Cup records and a total of nine victories in nine races on tour.
