Lütolf fourth in Moscow

Remo Lütolf in action

(Keystone)

Swiss swimmer Remo Lütolf has failed to find a spot on the podium at the world short course swimming championships in the Russian capital, Moscow.

The St Gallen swimmer came in fourth in the 50 metre breaststroke final in a time of 27"34 trailing the bronze medal winner, Brazil's Eduardo Fischer, by eight centimetres.

The Ukranien powerhouse, Oleg Lisogor, took gold in a time of 26"42 with Portugal's Jose Couto having to make do with a silver.

It was a disappointing end to the tournament for the Swiss swimmer who had qualified for the final by finishing third in the semi-finals.

Lütolf's fourth place means that the Swiss team will only be bringing home one bronze medal, won by the Ticinese Flavia Rigamonti in the women's 800 metre freestyle.
