Katinka Hosszú wins four world cup golds

Hosszú triumphed in four races where she dominated in the 400m freestyle, 100m IM; 400m IM and in the 100m backstroke

Olympic Champion Katinka Hosszú has won four gold medals at the FINA/airweave Swimming World Cup series 2016 in Moscow, Russia.

Hosszú triumphed in four races where she dominated in the 400m freestyle, 100m IM; 400m IM and in the 100m backstroke.

“I enjoy competing in 25m pools," she said, "Although I still need some more time to get used to the short course format. Nevertheless, I have already got very close to my best results on 100m back and 100m IM. My major motivation for now – every single start I will take part in – are the 2020 Olympic Games and of course the FINA Worlds 2017 in Budapest,” Hosszú added.

Her success in the championships sees the self-styled 'Iron Lady' collect seven gold medals in total from the FINA Swimming World Cup series.
