HUNGARY's Katinka Hosszu is well on her way to defending her 2012 FINA World Cup crown after a scintillating triple that included her fourth world-record performance in two days in Eindhoven.
Hungary's Katinka Hosszu, who already has netted $30,000 in world record bonus checks, had an aggressive opening to the women's 400-meter IM but eventually settled for the World Cup record instead.
Ranomi Kromowidjojo is the now the Olympic, World, and World Cup Eindhoven champion in the 50 freestyle.
Less than one week after the Netherlands’ Ranomi Kromowidjojo claimed top honors at the FINA World Championships in the 50 meter freestyle, she came out victorious in the short course meters variant of the race at the FINA World Cup stop at Eindhoven.
Lauren Boyle has carried her medal-winning form from the world swimming championships to short course racing with victory in the Netherlands.
The 25-year-old won the 800m freestyle on the opening night of the FINA World Cup at Eindhoven and was just a touch away from breaking the world record in the process.
WORLD 100m freestyle champion James Magnussen has extended his golden touch to the short-course pool.
Magnussen won his pet event at the opening World Cup event in Eindhoven, The Netherlands, today. After claiming his second world title in Barcelona last week, Magnussen said he wanted to keep his winning streak "rolling” at the first two rounds of the World Cup in Eindhoven and Berlin.
