FINA WORLD CUP, BERLIN: KATINKA HOSSZU SWEEPS IM WORLD RECORDS

Sunday, August 11, 2013



Make it $60,000 in world-record bonus checks for the Iron Lady as Hungary's Katinka Hosszu came roaring back in the freestyle leg to complete an IM world-record sweep this week. Although initial information states that a $50,000 world-record bonus is in place, Hosszu's fianc?/coach Shane Tusup assures us that FINA has lifted that cap looking for more world records on the FINA World Cup.

This evening, after clocking a world record in the sprint medley for the third time this week during prelims, Hosszu turned on the afterburners in the freestyle leg of the distance medley for the world record as she clocked a 4:20.85 to become the first woman to break 4:21.

That swim broke the world record set by Julia Smit with a 4:21.04 back in Manchester, England in 2009, and gave Hosszu an amazing sweep of the IM records as she currently owns the 100 IM (57.45), 200 IM (2:03.20) and now 400 IM (4:20.85) marks for her sixth world record performance in four days of swimming this week.
