New win for Alshammar
Therese Alshammar came in first and third place in two swimming events on Saturday at the FINA World Cup series stop in Tokyo, reports Swedish Radio News. She won in the 100 meter butterfly with a time of 55.95 seconds. It is her fourteenth win this year.
Alshammar, who'll compete in two events on Sunday, then took home a bronze in the 50 meter freestyle event. Alshammar sits on top of the FINA World Cup cash earnings list and is virtually guaranteed to stay on top of the pack for 2011.
