Cameron van der Burgh was, once more, the swimmer to watch in this FINA/ARENA Swimming World Cup 2008. On the first day of the sixth leg of the competition, in Stockholm (SWE), the South African star bettered his own 50m breaststroke World Record, touching in 25.94. On November 8, 2008 in Moscow (the previous meet of the circuit), Burgh had clocked 26.08 and has now become the first swimmer ever under 26 seconds in this distance. It was the fifth World Record of this World Cup, and the third for Van der Burgh (he also established the 100m breaststroke world best mark in Moscow). Furthermore, this performance gave him 1073 points, the best men’s outcome of the first day of competition in the Swedish capital.

Cameron van der Burgh and Valentina Artemyeva - swimmers of the World Cup Moscow meet

Cameron van der Burgh (RSA) set another world record in the 100m breaststroke (56.88) and it was fantastic show: the swimmer lowered by 0.59 the previous mark of 57.47 owned by Ed Moses. This outstanding performance also made Van der Burgh the winner of Moscow competition and gave him (together with the bonus points awarded for a world record) 65 points and 20 000 USD of additional prize money.
“I’m gonna invest my money now,” Van der Burgh said after the race. “I think it would be a correct decision.”
“I was only 4th in the overall rank before this meet but now my results are somewhat higher. I know one thing very well - don't stop at the top,” he added.
