Berlin - Hungary's 'Iron Lady' Katinka Hosszu earned four more victories on the World Cup circuit on Wednesday, to give her a total of seven wins over the two-day meet in Berlin.

Having already won the 200m freestyle, 200m backstroke and 200m individual medley finals on Tuesday, the 27-year-old hammered out further short-course wins in the 400m freestyle, 100m backstroke, 100m and 400m individual medley.

Her points haul means she is the clear leader in the overall World Cup rankings after two of the nine legs on the circuit, with Moscow the next destination this weekend.

Having broken his own 100m IM short-course world record on Tuesday, Russia's Vladimir Morozov, the men's overall leader, won Wednesday's 50m freestyle final and finished third in the 100m breaststroke, won by South Africa's Cameron van der Burgh.

It was the South African's 50th World Cup victory since he joined the annual series in 2008.
