The Ukrainian pipped Simmonds in the 100m, but both were beaten by gold medallist Emily Seebohm from Australia.

London 2012 silver medallist Michael Jamieson continued his run of finishing in the top three at the previous six legs of this year's World Cup with bronze in the 200m breaststroke.

The Glaswegian finished third in a time of 2:04.32 behind Hungary's Daniel Gyurta (2:01.30) and Japan's Yasuhiro Koseki (2:03.63).
