ZUMO Performance of the Week: Vladimir Morozov Cracks Top 10 In 100 Free World Rankings



Vladimir Morozov continued his impressive run at the FINA World Cup Singapore with a 47.88 to win the 100 free and set a new meet record last week. Morozov lowered his own record of 47.99 he set last week and moved up to tenth in the world for the year in a tie with USA’s Tate Jackson. This was a significant improvement for Morozov who was only a 49.0 at the World Championships and did not make it out of the heats. Morozov won going away ahead of Hungary’s Szebasztian Szabo (48.53) and Italy’s Santo Condorelli (48.72). Morozov is now the second fastest Russian this year behind Vladislav Grinev.

Szabo was off his season best of 48.4 that he swam at the World Cup in Tokyo while Condorelli was a 48.5 at the same meet in Japan two weeks ago.
