By Sharon Robb

September 30, 2014—-Three-time Jamaican Olympian Alia Atkinson added another gold and bronze medal along with her first silver at the FINA/MASTBANK Swimming World Cup Tuesday night in Hong Kong.

The South Florida Aquatic Club swimmer won her third straight 50-meter breaststroke title in 29.35, much slower than her times (29.12) in Doha and Dubai.

Atkinson, 25, was second in the 200-meter breaststroke in 2:24.94 and also took third in the 50-meter butterfly in 26.28.

Atkinson finished the opening leg of the second cluster with two gold medals and two bronze medals. She also won the 100-meter breaststroke and was third in the 50-meter freestyle.

Atkinson picked up $6,000 in Hong Kong and now has $43,000 in prize money earnings to rank third on the FINA circuit.

Hungarian Katinka Hosszu, who won five more events on he second night, totaled $17,000 in Hong Kong and now has $142,000 overall.

While American Tom Shields made the most money among men in Hong Kong with $7,500 he is fourth on the money list. South African Chad le Clos won $6,000 and has $66,500 to lead the men’s list.

Hosszu, the most versatile swimmer on the circuit, won the 100 backstroke, 400 individual medley, 200 butterfly, 400 freestyle and 100 individual medley on the final night. Le Clos won the 100 butterfly in 48.56 and 50 freestyle in 21.17.

The Hong Kong meet had one of the weakest fields assembled. The next FINA World Cup stop is Moscow where Atkinson will not compete.

Other winners were:

Men’s 1500-meter freestyle: Hungarian Gergely Gyurta won in 14:38.72. He was never challenged and led from start to finish.

By Sharon Robb

September 29, 2014—-South Florida Aquatic Club’s Alia Atkinson opened the FINA/MASTBANK Swimming World Cup Monday night in Hong Kong with gold and bronze medals.

The three-time Jamaican Olympian won a gold medal in the 100-meter breaststroke in 1:03.23 and bronze in the 50-meter freestyle in a best time 24.65 against less than stellar fields.

Atkinson, 25, also swam a career-best time in the 50-meter backstroke, fourth by an off stroke in 27.37. She withdrew from the 200-meter individual medley.

Atkinson is third in the World Cup point standings entering the second cluster of the FINA series. She has won three consecutive 100 breaststroke titles and is undefeated in the event in 2014 World Cup meets.

It was Hungarian Katinka Hosszu and American Tom Shields who stole the show and were the big winners on opening night.

Hosszu, 25, swam in six finals and won five of them. The Iron Lady won the 800-meter freestyle, 200-meter freestyle, 50-meter backstroke, 200-meter individual medley and 200-meter backstroke.

Only the Netherlands’ Inge Dekker prevented her from going six-for-six winning the 50-meter freestyle, just ahead of Hosszu who took silver.

Hosszu entered all 17 events over two days. She swam seven of eight in Monday’s prelims but scratched the 100-meter butterfly.

Hosszu has all but clinched the circuit and the series hasn’t even reached the halfway mark. Hosszu leads with 424, after picking up 69 the first day. Atkinson is third with 105 points after earning 18 points.

Shields, who had two wins and two seconds and picked up 42 points on opening night and is ranked third with 127.5 points behind Chad le Clos of South Africa and Daniel Gyurta of Hungary.

By Sharon Robb

September 27, 2014—American Heritage Plantation got its first real test of the season at the 37th annual FSPA Swimming and Diving Invitational Saturday night at Sailfish Splash Waterpark in Stuart.

Competing against several teams from around the state, the Patriots turned in several outstanding swims to capture the combined and boys team titles. Gulliver Prep won the girls team title, edging Gulf Coast, 222-219.

It was the Patriots second invitational meet victory of the season after winning the Suns Invitational earlier this month.

At FSPA, the defending state 2A champion boys team swept all three relays in season-best times, all ranked No. 1 in the county.

South Florida Aquatic Club’s Julien Pinon won the Patriots only individual event in a season-best 1:41.92. Pinon was also third in the 100-yard freestyle in 47.26.

Pinon anchored the winning 200- and 400-yard freestyle relays. The 200 relay of Taylor Eaddy, CJ Kopecki, Chris Garcia and Pinon won in 1:28.46. The 400 relay of Eaddy, Garcia, Fernando Bohorquez and Pinon won in 3:11.68.

The 200-yard medley relay team of Nico Medina, Jonathan Farah, Bohorquez and Eaddy won in 1:37.99.

Bohorquez and Eaddy also finished third in their events. Bohorquez was third in the 200-yard individual medley in 1:58.95 and Eaddy was third in the 100-yard butterfly in 52.40.
SOFLO’s Kopecki was also tenth in the 100-yard butterfly in 54.74.

The Patriots’ girls team turned in its best performance of the season. Alexandra Pacitti swam a season-best 1:56.70 in the 200-yard freestyle to finish ninth and take over the top spot in the county honor roll.

Teammate Catharine Cooper swam back-to-back best times in the 50-yard freestyle in prelims and finals. Cooper also has the county’s top times with 24.04 and 53.59. Cooper finished second in the 50 freestyle and fourth in the 100-yard freestyle with her fastest times of the season.

“The kids had great swims,” said Patriots coach Nobutaka Tan.

Gulliver Prep won one relay and two individual events. Kelly Fertel was a double winner in the 200-yard individual medley (2:04.88) and 100-yard breaststroke in 1:04.64.

Gulliver Prep also won the 400-yard freestyle in 3:34.92 with relay members Niki Urquidi, Namilla Sanchez, Corina Scheuren and Fertel.

Wellington’s Cody Cline was the Florida Gold Coast’s only boy individual event double winner in the 50-yard freestyle in 21.02 and 100-yard freestyle in 45.89.

Monarch’s swim team also had some impressive swims against a strong field.

Otavio Metzker swam back-to-back best times in the 50-yard freestyle in 22.99 and 22.61 to finish ninth in the 50-yard freestyle. He also swam back-to-back best times in the 100-yard butterfly in 56.56 and 56.02 and finished 13th.

Teammate Quinn Roth swam a best time 56.65 in the 100 butterfly to finish 15th.

Monarch was ninth in the 200-yard freestyle relay in a best time 1:32.78 with Santiago Ospina, Christian Uzzo, Roth and Metzker.

“It was an awesome pool and swim environment,” Metzker texted.

Pine Crest swept the 1-meter springboard diving titles. Juliette Pozzuoli won the girls title with 364.55 points and Austin Fields won the boys title with 465.20 points.

The meet, sponsored by the Florida Swimming Pool Association, is the largest meet of its kind in the southeastern United States.
