Smashing a total five world records, 'Iron lady' Katinka Hosszu, winner of the 2012 and 2013 Series, finished atop cluster 1 with 355 points while Dutch Inge Dekker took second (126 points) and Jamaica's Alia Atkinson (87 points), third. South African Chad Le Clos was the best among men with 120 points, followed by Hungary's Daniel Gyurta (116 points), owner of the sixth world record, and Thomas Fraser-Holmes (93 points).
