Chalmers Secures Triple Crown

Australian Dolphin Kyle Chalmers has reaffirmed his place as the premier male short course freestyler in international swimming ahead of next month’s World Championships with another win in his pet event at the final FINA World Cup event in Indianapolis over the weekend.

Chalmers cruised to victory in the 100m Freestyle final to claim the 2022 Triple Crown, undefeated in the event across all three World Cup meets in Berlin, Toronto and Indianapolis.

It marks the second season in a row Chalmers has swept the 100m title, amounting to seven consecutive World Cup victories in the event.

Chalmers also took Silver in the Men’s 50m Freestyle Final, touching just .09 outside of Trinidad and Tobago’s Dylan Carter.

Dolphins leader Madi Wilson completed a successful World Cup season with a further three medals of her own in Indianapolis, with Silver in the Women’s 100m Freestyle and Bronze in both the 50m and 200m Freestyle Finals.

The final results saw Wilson finish 7th overall in the women’s individual rankings across the World Cup circuit, with Chalmers placing sixth in the men’s rankings.

Attention now turns to the 16th FINA World Championships (25m) with the first session of racing at the Melbourne Sports and Aquatic Centre just over a month away.
