Kosuke Hagino picked up a pair of titles to close out the 2016 Bergen Swim Festival in Norway.

Hagino raced his way to a win in the men’s 100-meter fly with a time of 52.85.  Jan Sefl took second in 53.99 with Tomas Havranek earning third in 53.99.

Hagino doubled up in the men’s 200-meter breast with a time of 2:13.81. January Kutil took second in 2:16.09 with Christoph Meier winding up third in 2:16.74.

Katinka Hosszu captured the women’s 400-meter free in a time of 4:15.26.  That’s well off her eighth-ranked 4:04.96 from prelims of this meet, but was more than enough to knock off butterfly specialist Natsumi Hoshi (4:17.50).  Majken Smith placed third in 4:22.66.

Hosszu then won the women’s 200-meter IM in 2:12.58, off her top-ranked season best of 2:07.30 from the European Championships. Barbora Zavadova touched second in 2:14.07 with Kristyna Horska earning third in 2:14.13.

After winning the 50 back knockouts (see below for results), Hosszu wound up third in the women’s 100-meter fly with a 1:00.92.  Lucie Svecena won the event in 58.62 with Hoshi taking second in 59.32.

Hilda Luthersdottir followed up her 50-meter breast knockoff win with a 2:26.37 to win the women’s 200-meter breast.  That’s off her seventh-ranked 2:22.96 from Euros.  Stina Colleou took second in 2:30.30 with Ariel Braathen placing third in 2:32.30.  Hosszu faded back to seventh in 2:39.18.

Hosszu bounced back in the women’s 100-meter free with a 55.11 to win.  Susann Bjornsen placed second in 55.76 with Annika Winsnes finishing third in 56.10.

Henrik Christiansen topped the men’s 400-meter free in 3:49.11.  Truls Wigdel took second in 3:57.26 with Kristian Kron taking third in 3:57.41.
