PARIS, August 26 /TASS/. Russian swimmer Vladimir Morozov set a new world record at 100 m IM on short course (50.60) at the first stage of the 2016 FINA World Cup in Paris.
His swim broke the previous record (50.66) set by Germany’s Markus Deibler at the 2014 Short Course World Championships in Doha. Morozov won silver behind Deibler in that race going 50.81. His previous best time stood at 50.77 from the Vladimir Salnikov Cup in Saint Petersburg, less than two weeks after those World Championships.
Morozov is a bronze medalist of the 2012 Olympic Games in 4 x100 free.
Morozov was one of the Russian athletes initially banned from competing in Rio at the Olympics for doping implications, as he was mentioned in the McLaren report for suspected ‘disappearing positive tests’. He was reinstated together with the other Russian athletes but failed to win any medals at the 2016 Rio Olympics.
