Singapore - South Africa’s Chad Le Clos and Hungary’s Katinka Hosszu were the overall winners of the FINA Swimming World Cup which ended in Singapore on Sunday.
Fina.org reports that the winners sparkled champagne to celebrate their victory and the prize money of $100 000.
On Sunday, Hosszu added two more gold medals to her tally, bringing her total to an unprecedented 51 gold, a kind of world record in itself.
She also won six silver and nine bronze – 66 medals overall.
Le Clos won one more gold, in the 100m butterfly, to take his tally to 27 in all.
On Sunday, he again went after a world record, but just missed it.
"It was a good race and I did it strategically.
"I think I’ll only get better by the end of the year.
"I was confident today and I believe I can get a world record (at the upcoming FINA World Swimming Championships in Doha).
"Singapore has always been a good place to race for me," said Le Clos.
The major player of the day was Spain’s Mireia Belmonte, who won three events – the 400m IM, 200m butterfly, 400m freestyle - in all of them leaving her Hungarian rival behind.
Another swimmer who put in a solid performance was Jamaica’s Alia Atkinson who once more beat Ruta Meilutyte of Lithuania, this time in the 50m breaststroke, and also won the 200m in a time of 2:17.84.
