Wollongong swimmer Robert Hurley picked up three medals, two of them gold, at the Dubai leg of the FINA World Cup Series on Thursday night.
Hurley convincingly won gold in the men’s 400m freestyle final, hitting the wall in 3:40.24, more than a second clear of South African Myles Brown (3:41.84) and Denmark’s Mads Glaesner (3:42.35).
The 25-year-old also won silver in the men’s 100m backstroke in a time of 50.34, just 0.19 away from the USA’s Thomas Shields (50.15) who won gold.
Hurley then combined with Australian short-course specialist Kenneth To, Emily Seebohm and Belinda Hocking to take top spot in the mixed 4x50m medley relay.
The Aussie team (1:42.31) finished ahead of Japan (1:43.15) and China (1:44.43) to win the race.
The Dubai leg of the FINA World Cup will continue tonight.
