SINGAPORE -- Canadian swimmer Katerine Savard settled for a fifth-place finish in the women's 200-metre butterfly Wednesday at a FINA World Cup competition.

Savard, from Pont-Rouge, Que., finished in two minutes 9.39 seconds. Franziska Hentke of Germany won the gold.

"My focus in the 200 today was really on my technique," said Savard. "It's the start of a new season for us and it's always a bit stressful."

Hilary Caldwell of White Rock, B.C., was sixth in the women's 100-metre backstroke. Katinka Hosszu of Hungary won the gold.

Hosszu also finished first in the 400-metre individual medley. Sydney Pickrem of Halifax was sixth.
