World champion Cate Campbell has added another gold at the World Cup shortcourse two-day meet in Singapore, completing the sprint double with a win in the women’s 100m freestyle.
The 21-year-old notched a time of 51.67, half a second faster than the rest of the field, to beat out Sweden’s Sarah Sjoestroem on Wednesday and add to her 50m freestyle gold from Tuesday.
Meanwhile, Thomas Fraser-Holmes, who took gold in the 400m individual medley on the opening day, finished second to South Africa’s Chad Le Clos in the 200m freestyle.
Gold Coast-based Fraser-Holmes took a big lead halfway through the race, but a thrilling finish from Le Clos gave him the win by 18-hundredths of a second.
Fraser-Holmes finished second to Le Clos again in the 200m individual medley, rounding out the four strokes in 1:54.60 behind the South African’s 1:53.36.
Another opening day gold medallist, Robert Hurley, followed up his 400m freestyle win on Tuesday with a silver in the 50m backstroke, clocking a time of 23.26.
Emily Seebohm also picked up a silver, her fourth medal of the meet, finishing second to Hungary’s Katinka Hosszu in the women’s 100m backstroke.
The silver lining continued with Mitch Larkin finishing second in the 200m backstroke, and Alicia Coutts second in the 100m individual medley.
In the mixed 4x50m freestyle relay, the Australia A team of Regan Leong, Travis Mahoney, Brittany Elmslie and Emma McKeon won silver behind Brazil, while the Australia B team of Mitch Larkin, Thomas Fraser-Holmes, Chelsea Gillett and Madison Wilson won bronze.
