Mitch Larkin (AUS) tops Tokyo leg of the World Cup

100m and 200m back World champion Mitchell Larkin (AUS) crowned a hugely successful meet by posting the best time in the world this year in the 200m backstroke (1:53.34), as the Tokyo leg of the FINA/airweave Swimming World Cup 2015 drew to a close tonight in the Japanese capital. This was Larkin’s second win of the meet as he won the 100m back on Day 1.

Still on the Australian side, Emily Seebohm (AUS) topped the backstroke events, each time winning the duel with “Iron Lady” Katinka Hosszu (HUN). Together with Larkin, their successes allowed Australia to collect five golds and a silver in Tokyo.
