2014 men’s winner Chad Le Clos is also slated to appear with entries in the 200 free, 50 fly, 100 fly and 200 fly.

    A World Cup just two days after the end of the World Championships seems a little soon and anti-climactic, though understandable to catch people going through Moscow on the way home from Kazan.

    But what is it going to take FINA to get the World Cup to rival those in winter sports, i.e. where all of the world’s best are going at each other every week? There are some great swimmers here, and no poor ones, but a lot of great swimmers are missing. The Americans, in particular, are lacking most of their big guns.
