New Zealand swimmer Glenn Snyders wrapped up his European campaign with another record-breaking victory at the World Cup short course meet in Berlin.

Snyders, 24, won the men's 100 metres breaststroke final after winning the 50m breaststroke final on the first day.

After trailing China's emerging star Xiayan Li at the 50m mark, Snyders came home strongly to win in 57.82s ahead of Li and Great Britain's Commonwealth Games medley gold medallist James Goddard .

Snyders broke his own national short course record for 100m set in 2008 and he's the first New Zealand breaststroker to go under 58 seconds.

The World Cup moves to Singapore on November 4-5, then Beijing November 8-9 and Tokyo on November 12-13.
