THE stars have arrived in Singapore ahead of Tuesday's Fina Swimming World Cup at the Singapore Sports School.

Leading the men's field is Olympic champion Chad le Clos, who beat United States superstar Michael Phelps in spectacular fashion in the 200m butterfly at the 2012 London Games.

Three-time world champion Katinka Hosszu from Hungary and two-time European champion Mireia Belmonte of Spain head the women's field for the Singapore leg of the World Cup, a short-course series competed over eight cities around the world.

Singapore Swimming president Jeffrey Leow also announced that the nation will continue to host the two-day competition for the next four years after agreeing with Fina to a new deal.
