Morozov keeps Le Clos waiting with golden double at SWC Singapore

Vladimir Morozov (RUS) struck gold twice to carry the men’s series title race to a final day at the FINA/airweave Swimming World Cup in Singapore, on Saturday.

However, the Russian needs to set a world record in Sunday morning’s heats to prevent Chad le Clos (RSA) taking the crown off him ahead of Sunday night’s finals session.

Katinka Hosszu (HUN) also needs to set a world record in Sunday’s heats to have any chance of retaining the title she has held for five years, otherwise it passes to Sarah Sjostrom (SWE).
