CHARLOTTE, North Carolina, May 18. WITH her sixth win of the meet in the 200 back, Hungary's Katinka Hosszu proved to be the clear Queen of Charlotte here at the Arena Grand Prix.

Hosszu had her hands full early on with Megan Romano, but had much more in the tank en route to putting up a 2:10.12 for the win in the distance dorsal tonight. That vaulted her to 15th in the SwimVortex world rankings as she continued to collect first-place checks having won six of her seven finals. Overall, she's cashed $3,000 for her wins this week in Charlotte.


Romano, meanwhile, grabbed second-place honors in 2:11.46 with Hannah Moore checking in with a 2:12.20 for third overall.

Elizabeth Beisel, who has had an incredibly busy weekend, took fourth in the event with a 2:13.03. Yin Yan Lau (2:16.36) and Brooke Zeiger (2:17.66) finished fifth and sixth.

Hellen Moffitt (2:18.52) and Caroline Arakelian (2:19.33) also competed in the championship field.
