The 'FINA Arena World Cup' featured great performances and big payouts!
This FINA Arena World Cup was a great meet and you can get a PDF of the results at Lane 9 News. [Link]
For instance: Randall Bal "leapfrogged" three of Peter Marshall's WRs in the 50scm backstroke to claim the title.
Tara Kirk really did well finishing first in both the 50scm, and the 100scm breaststroke with little training.
Kara Lynn Joyce stands out too finishing 3rd in the 50scm free and 6th in the 400scm free which is pretty impressive considering that she is a sprinter.
Then there were the WRs set by Alshammar but then eclipsed by Guehrer Marieke in the last heat of the 50scm fly.
We need more of these international races.
