The World University Games pool swimming came to a close this evening with Russia concluding what proved to be a dominant outing for the host nation in Kazan.

The Sizzling Siberian Vlad Morozov, who has been dropping some serious times on the competition throughout the entire meet, smashed his meet record in the men’s splash-and-dash with a scorching time of 21.67.

The swimming world is truly excited to see the heavyweight battle between Lithuania’s Ruta Meilutyte and Russia’s Yuliya Efimova. This past week, the two have been trading shots between Poland (Meilutyte, European Junior Championships) and Russia (Efimova, World University Games). Tonight was no different with Efimova blazing to a 30.12 in the women’s 50-meter breast.

Following a health scare last night when she collapsed on deck after a difficult 20-minute double between winning the 800-meter free and competing in the 200 free, Italy‘s Martina De Memme demonstrated she had plenty in her tank this night en route to winning her second gold medal.

De Memme popped a 4:07.69 in the middle-distance event for the win, to close out the individual events for the week in the pool. While Australia’s Leah Neale looked strong through the first half of the swim, De Memme had way too much firepower in the final 200 meters as she started turning in 30s in the final 100 meters.

Russia’s Elena Sokolova pushed her way to second in 4:08.51, while Great Britain’s Caitlin McClatchey snagged third in 4:08.77.
