MOSCOW, Russia-- The Stanford duo of Julia Smit and Elaine Breeden continued to blaze across the international swimming world following two days of competition at the World Cup in Moscow.
Smit won three more medals, giving her 17, while Breeden picked up her fifth-straight win in the 200 fly and was third in the 100 fly to give her eight medals over the championship season.
The seven city World Cup concludes this weekend in Stockholm on November 6 and 7.
Smit's road to her ninth and tenth gold medal since October 12 was an easy one, winning the 200 and 400-meter individual medleys for the fourth time each. Her times were 2:08.56 and 4:31.45, respectively. The only time she's finished second in those two events was in her first world cup, in Beijing.
She also finished second in the 100 IM (1:00.38), three tenths behind Hinkelein Schreuder (1:00.17).
Breeden was one of three Americans in the finals of the 200 fly, leading the field with a mark of 2:06.36. The 24-time All-American has won every 200-meter event she has entered since beginning her world cup trek with Smit four weeks ago in Beijing. Breeden was also third in the 100 fly with a mark of 58.30.
Smit continues to rank second in the overall standings to Sweden's Therese Alshammar and in front of Schreuder from the Netherlands.
The complete schedule for the world cup includes: Rio de Janeiro (Sept 10-12), Beijing (October 12-13), Singapore (October 16-17), Tokyo (October 20-21), Berlin (October 30-31), Moskow (November 2-3) and Stockholm (November 6-7). Over 80 swimmers are a part of each event.
