Katinka Hosszú won 10 medals at the third leg of the FINA Swimming World Cup 2013 in Moscow

Monday, October 14, 2013

Current World Cup leader and defending winner Katinka Hosszu (HUN) added two more gold medals to her impressive collection at the Moscow meet (an overall tally of 10 medals: three gold, four silver and three bronze). In the 400m IM, Hosszu comfortably won in 4:30.65. Miyu Otsuka (JPN) came second in 4:32.35 while Mirea Belmonte (ESP) came third in 4:36.55.

In the 200m butterfly, the Hungarian claimed a win in 2:06.80. Sophie Allen (GBR) and Mirea Belmonte (ESP) took respectively silver and bronze in times of 2:07.92 and 2:10.77.

On beating no records this time, Hosszu said: "My physical conditions are pretty good. We've just come from training and I'm a little bit tired. We didn't really rest for this meet. But I'm happy with my results. I'm doing much better than last year in Moscow. I was not thinking about records because I'm kind of feeling tired and I'm focusing on so many races. It would be a good thing to set one more World record after six at two previous stages of the World Cup but hopefully I'll get more gold."
