Rio Olympics star Katinka Hosszu has been confirmed for the Hong Kong Swimming World Cup at the end of next month.

The Hungarian medley specialist won three golds and a silver medal in Brazil in August – more individual events than any other swimmer – breaking the world record in the 400-metre IM.

Four of Hong Kong’s Olympic team – Rosanna Sze Hang-yu, Yvette Kong Man-yi, Claudia Lau Yin-yan and Camille Cheng Lily Mei – will also be in action at the US$102,000 event at Victoria Park on October 29 and 30.

Hong Kong is the last leg of the nine-leg series, with Hosszu well in front after the opening three.

Hosszu has dominated in Hong Kong in recent years, winning eight events last year and 10 the year before.
