One of the closest races this Season came in the Women's 50m Freestyle in which fourth ranked Catie DeLoof (TOK, 24.19) finished 0.01s of Mariia Kamaneva (AQC) and 0.03s ahead of favourite Ranomi Kromowidjojo (IRO).

Daiya Seto (1:52.59) was back winning the Men's 200m Individual Medley for Tokyo, almost a second ahead of Philip Heintz (NYB, 1:53.58). Joe Litchfield (NYB, 1:54.65) finished sixth.

Abbie Wood (NYB) and Yui Ohashi, (TOK) tied for first place in the Women's 200m Individual Medley on 2:05.45 after the Japanese Olympic gold medallist recovered over 0.5s on the freestyle leg.

The only sub 26s swim came from top ranked Aqua Centurion Nicolo Martinenghi (25.89) as he won the Men's 50m Breaststroke and with it a sizeable jackpot. James Wilby (NYB) clocked 27.81.

An Aqua Centurion 1-2 from Arianna Castiglioni (29.09) and Martina Carraro (29.72) in the Women's 50m Breaststroke scored a combined 26 points in the race.

The AQC momentum continued with a 3:06.37 win in the Men's 4x100m Freestyle which extended their Club's lead over Tokyo by 31 points. The margin of victory was 0.3s over a New York Breakers quartet led off by Jacob Whittle (47.26) who had touched in third, one place behind Matt Richards (IRO, 47.21).

Iron (3:50.15) and a New York (3:52.62) foursome which included Molly Renshaw (1:05.74) came second and third.

Day 2

Day 2 kicked off with Ranomi Kromowidjojo (51.99) and Barbora Seemanova (52.31) demonstrating Iron's intent to close the points gap with a 1-2 in the Women's 100m Freestyle.

Aqua Centurions responded with a 1-2 of their own from Alessandro Miressi (46.31) and Thomas Cccon (46.62) in the Men's 100m Freestyle which saw Matt Richards (47.30) finish the faster of the two Iron swimmers in seventh place.

Svetlana Chimrova (NYB, 2:04.65) overtook Iron's Alys Thomas (2:04.85) over the final 50m to win the Women's 200m Butterfly by 0.2s. Harriet Jones (TOK) clocked 2:10.68.

Daiya Seto (TOK, 1:51.13) held onto a lead he had taken over by 150m from a fading Matt Temple to finish the Men's 200m Butterfly 0.18s ahead of Leonardo de Deus (AQC) and earn jackpots.

Pauline Peda (NYB, 57.40) denied Iron’s Ingeborg Loyning the chance of a double by 0.02s in the Women's 100m Backstroke. Tokyo's DeLoof sisters Catie and Gabby finished third and fourth.

Favourite Robert Glinta (49.60) won the Men's 100m Backstroke for Iron with the only sub 50s swim. Elliot Clogg (NYB, 52.91) finished seventh.

New York's third individual win of Day 2 came courtesy of Alicja Tchorz (58.43) who held off the advancing Constanza Coccocelli (IRO) by 0.02s in the Women's 100m Medley. NYB team mate Abbie Wood clocked 59.36 for her fifth place.

The wins continued to be spread around as Iron's Marco Orsi (51.51) beat his countryman Thomas Ceccon (AQC) to the finish of the Men's 100m Medley by 0.33s. Joe Litchfield (NYB, 52.69) placed fifth.

Aqua Centurions Arianna Castiglioni (1:04.09) and Martina Carraro (1:04.52) delivered another 1-2 in the Women's 100m Breaststroke event. New York's Molly Renshaw (1:05.37) and Sarah Vasey (1:06.34) placed fifth and seventh.

Arno Kamminga (AQC, 56.46) overtook Yasuhiro Koseki (TOK, 56.66) to win the Men's 100m Breaststroke. Unfortunately James Wilby's 1:00.45 was outside the required time standard.

With the battle between AQC and Iron clearly focusing efforts, Holly Barratt (25.28) edged out chasing Iron duo Ranomi Kromowidjojo by 0.02s and Melanie Henique by 0.09s in the Women's 50m Butterfly. Harrie Jones (TOK) clocked 26.39.

Iron responded when Matches 3, 5 and 7 winner Nicholas Santos produced the Season 3 best time for the event, and sixth-fastest ever - 21.83 - to win comfortably the Men's 50m Butterfly ahead of chasing Centurions Szebasztian Szabo (22.41) and Matteo Rivolta (22.63).

Barbora Seemanova's form pulled in more points for Iron as she led throughout and won the Women's 200m Freestyle in 1:53.31 ahead of Federica Pellegrini (AQC, 1:53.82) whose team mate Holly Hibbott clocked 1:56.70.

Brits Joe Litchfield (1:43.04) and Matt Richards (1:43.11) delivered a 1-2 in the Men's 200m Freestyle, albeit for different clubs, NYB and AQC, following Litchfield's surge from 4th place with 50m to go.

With the relays and skins likely to decide top spot, the Mixed 4x100m Medley served up first (3:35.96) and third places for AQC as Iron captured second (3:36.00) and fourth, unsurprisingly all swum MMFF. Molly Renshaw (1:05.30) featured in the seventh placed New York quartet anchored by Jacob Whittle (46.79).

Yui Ohashi (4:28.33) and Abbie Wood (NYB, 4:29.63) had a 'close' Women's 400m Medley race in Season 3 terms and well clear of the remaining competitors. Wood found herself 0.41 s behind Ohashi after only 50m and although generally tracking her pace, failed to close the gap.

In a repeat of Match 6 placings, Daiya Seto (TOK, 3:58.65) won the Men's 400m Medley in a Season 3 best time for event, 2.09s ahead of Ilia Borodin (AQC, 4:00.74).

AQC and IRO's match ups continued in the Women's Butterfly Skins Race 50m with their four swimmers progressing to Round 2. The results came down to a 0.11s difference after winner Ranomi Kromowidjojo (IRO, 26.86) overook Holly Barratt (AQC, 26.97) over the last 25m.

With two Aqua Centurions making the cut for Round 2 to Iron's one, Thom de Boer, in the Men's Freestyle Skins Race 50m, Roar's chances of an overall win were gone. De Boer swam 22.86 to win the final ahead of Alessandro Miressi (AQC, 23.49) but the Italian based team had done enough to secure a first win.
