Doha is set to host the second event of the International Swimming Federation (FINA) World Cup season.



Competition in the Qatari capital will begin tomorrow and run through until Saturday (September 15).

The Hamad Aquatic Centre will provide the venue for the event, which follows on from the season opener in the Russian city Kazan.

Hungary’s Katinka Hosszu will expect to achieve further success in Doha having won three events in Kazan just three days ago.

She currently heads the women’s World Cup standings after the only stop of the series, followed by Sweden’s Sarah Sjostrom.

Sjostrom achieved three World Cup records in Kazan, achieving new marks in the women’s 50 and 100 metres butterfly events, as well as the 50m freestyle.

Russia’s Vladimir Morozov produced bests in the men’s 50m freestyle and backstroke competitions.

He currently tops the men’s standings, with the United States’ Michael Andrew his closest rival at the early stage of the World Cup season.

The third leg of the World Cup season will take place in Eindhoven next month, followed by an event in Budapest.



The final three events will take place in Beijing, Tokyo and Singapore in November.
