Some of swimming's brightest talents will aim to make a splash at the Fina Swimming World Cup in Singapore next month.

Rising stars such as triple Olympic champion Ranomi Kromowidjojo and the Hungarian Katinka Hosszu, dubbed the "Iron Lady" for entering in 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 very own Tao Li, Amanda Lim and Mylene Ong will also be competing at the short- course event.

The Republic kicks off the first leg of the Asian cluster, which includes China and Japan.

The winners of the Asian series stand to win a total prize pot of US$306,000 (S$384,000), a three-fold increase from last year. This will be equally shared between the top six-ranked men and women.
