PHOTOS: World Cup swimmers break records in Qatar


All photos by Ray Toh

Several records fell in Qatar late last week as swimmers from around the globe descended on Doha for the first leg of the FINA 2014 Swimming World Cup.

Hungarian Katinka Hosszu stole the show at the Hamad Aquatic Center, capturing five medals and setting a new world record time of 4:20.83 in the 400-meter event.

She also bested the world record in the 100-meter individual medley (previously held by Hosszu) with a new time of 57.25.

Qatar expat Ray Toh attended the tournament and snapped several photos of the action.

Some 900 swimmers will be back in Doha in early December when Qatar hosts the 25-meter World Swimming Championships.

Thoughts? Did you catch any of the action?
