Katinka Hosszu set herself up with three more finals spots tonight during day two prelims of the 2015 FINA World Cup Chartres.

Hosszu topped qualifying in the 100-meter free with a 54.69 ahead of Natalie Coughlin’s second-seeded 54.76.  Missy Franklin qualified third in 55.08.

Hosszu then trailed Coughlin, 1:00.36 to 1:00.68, in the 100-meter back for the top two seeds. Franklin (1:00.73) and Emily Seebohm (1:00.94) also broke 1:01.
