THE ARENA Swimming World Cup couldn’t get any better for South Africa’s swimming sensation Roland Schoeman.

This all went down on the final day of the second-last leg in Moscow when Schoeman remained the number one of the 500m freestyle race, continuing to fly the SA flag.

The 30 year-old Pretoria born is expected to continue revealing some of his mesmerizing swimming techniques in the final leg of the Arena SWC that is set to take place in Stockholm on 6 and 7 November.

Tagging along to the final leg are: Darian Townsend, Ferns,George Du Rand and Mandy Loots where they  will also be joined by the breaststroker Neil Versfeld
