Ingram, Snyders in winning form again
Sun, 14 Oct 2012 12:27p.m.
New Zealand swimmers Melissa Ingram and Glenn Snyders have scored outstanding wins as the FINA World Cup moved to Europe this weekend.
Ingram won the women's 200m backstroke in an emphatic performance while Snyders broke the New Zealand short-course record in winning the 50m breaststroke on the first day of competition in Stockholm, Sweden overnight.
The North Shore pair are competing in all rounds of the FINA Arena World Cup that comprises eight two-day short course meets in Dubai and Doha before moving to Stockholm, Moscow and Berlin and finishing in Asia with three rounds in Beijing, Tokyo and Singapore.
Ingram, who topped the qualifiers, led from the start with an even-paced race to win in 2 minutes 4.84 seconds, nearly 3secs clear of Hungary's Katinka Hosszu. It was her fastest time of the series so far.
Snyders was the class performer, edging out Brazil's Junior Gomes to the touch in the final in 26.61secs, which broke the national record he set in Doha last week.
The pair, part of Swimming New Zealand's High Performance Centre, earlier had four podium finishes each before their wins.
