Dolphins impress in FINA World Cup opener

A group of Australian Dolphins have produced impressive performances in the opening leg of the 2022 FINA Swimming World Cup series in Berlin.

Men’s 100m Freestyle short course World Record holder Kyle Chalmers continued his dominance in the event, claiming Gold in the blue riband sprint with a convincing victory over Frenchman Maxime Grousset.

It was one of three medals for Chalmers across the meet in Berlin, with the South Australian also securing Silver in the 50m and 200m Freestyle finals respectively.

Chalmers was joined in the medals by a pair of his training partners as the depth in Australian women’s sprinting was again on display, with Madi Wilson claiming Silver in both the 100m and 200m Freestyle, and Meg Harris taking Bronze in the 50m Freestyle.

Fellow Dolphins Holly Barratt and Maddy Gough rounded out the medals for Australia in Berlin, with Silver in the Women’s 50m Butterfly and Bronze in the Women’s 800m Freestyle respectively.

The Berlin meet was the first of three stops in the 2022 World Cup series, with competitions in Toronto and Indianapolis to come across the next two weekends.
