TOP-CLASS swimming returns to Singapore in November with the Fina short-course World Cup meeting.
Rising stars such as triple Olympic champion Ranomi Kromowidjojo and the Hungarian Katinka Hosszu, dubbed the "Iron Lady" for entering multiple events, have confirmed their attendance for the Nov 5-6 showpiece at the Singapore Sports School.
Olympic 200m butterfly champion Chad le Clos is also expected to put his name down soon for the sixth leg of the eight-series World Cup.
Singapore's Tao Li, Amanda Lim and Mylene Ong will also be competing at the event which will be held in a 25m pool. The Republic kicks off the first leg of the Asian cluster, which includes China and Japan.
Up and coming local swimmers such as Samantha Yeo and Darren Lim will also be striving for podium spots and personal bests ahead of December's SEA Games in Myanmar.
