Camille Lacourt scopre di avere un tumore ma non batte ciglio e punta a Rio 2016. La malattia per fortuna benigna sarà rimossa presto.

Dopo mesi di incertezza e di assenza dalle gare per un infortunio che l’ha costretto a saltare i Campionati Assoluti primaverili Francesi ed i Campionati Europei di Berlino, Camille Lacourt rivela al canale informatico francese RMC Sport di avere un tumore all’anca.
La malattia, per fortuna benigna, è emersa in seguito all’assorbimento di un ematoma che ha poi evidenziato il problema effettivo di cui il transalpino soffriva da oltre cinque mesi.
Nella giornata di domani Lacourt si sottoporrà ad un trattamento che prevede l’iniezione di un liquido che dovrebbe accelerare la rimozione del tumore, operazione dopo la quale l’atleta conta di rientrare in acqua dopo tre giorni per riprendere gli allenamenti e prepararsi al Trofeo Nico Sapio che si disputerà a Genova l’1 e 2 novembre.
Nonostante il difficile momento che lo vede costretto a stare fuori dall’acqua già da diverso tempo, Lacourt non lascia trasparire dubbi sul suo futuro:
«Le Olimpiadi sono il Santo Graal nella carriera di un atleta. Ai Giochi di Londra ho mancato il podio arrivando quarto (100 dorso a 3 centesimi dall’alloro olimpico – n.d.r.) e non era proprio quello che avevo pianificato, quindi mi piacerebbe chiudere con una medaglia.»
Camille Lacourt va anche oltre il nuoto, soffermandosi sul futuro della sua famiglia che vorrebbe allargare:
«La mia piccola Jazz non sarà figlia unica.»

Back To The Future In Hong Kong - It was only a matter of time before Anna Olasz of Hungary won a FINA 10K Marathon Swimming World Cup.

The young Hungarian first showed her potential in local races on the European continent, but then really debuted among the world's top echelon at the 2012 London Olympic Games qualification race in Portugal when she just missed out in representing her native country at the 2012 Olympic Games. Olasz just barely lost to eventual Olympic Champion Éva Risztov and quickly started looking forward to 2016.

She eventually moved to Arizona in the United States for her college education, but the serious student-athlete continues to march up the pecking order among world's fastest open water swimmers. The Hong Hong race was her break-out performance where she faced a slew of top Olympians in Poliana Okimoto, Keri-Anne Payne, Ana Marcela Cunha, Melissa Gorman, and Angela Maurer. The Arizona State University student came through and came out in tough in an extremely tough and close race where the top 13 women finished within 15 seconds of one another.

The race also featured swimmers from Ecuador (Samantha Arevalo), Thailand (Benjaporn Sriphanomthorn), Ammiga Himathongkom, and Porsuda Viniyompong) - other emerging areas of interest in open water swimming.

Blooming In Brazil, Changing Of The Guard

Brazil is hot right now, especially with 25-year-old Allan do Carmo and 22-year-old Ana Marcela Cunha standing on top of the FINA 10K Marathon Swimming World Cup standings.

Together with Poliana Okimoto, Brazilian swimmers are showing the open water swimming investments by Confederação Brasileira de Desportos Aquáticos (the national governing body of Brazilian aquatics) are paying off handsome dividends.

Do Carmo was able to stand on the finish podium for the first time after the competition in the 28ºC waters of Hong Kong. Meanwhile, Cunha added her third series title after initial victories in the 2010 and 2012 seasons. Cunha finished with five gold medals, one silver and two bronze while Do Carmo finished with two gold medals, two silver and one bronze. In total, Brazil's Confederação Brasileira de Desportos Aquáticos ended its most impressive World Cup season with 20 podium finishes (8 golds, 7 silvers and 5 bronzes).

Coming off the back of its dominating overall performance at the 2013 FINA World Championships, the epicenter of elite open water swimming is rapidly shifting from the Old Guard (Russia, Germany, Italy) and Power Players (Great Britain, Netherlands, USA) to the Southern Hemisphere for the first time.

Brazilian athletes' history on the FINA World Cup circuit include:

* 2007: Poliana Okimoto - 3rd place overall
* 2008: Ana Marcela Cunha - 3rd place overall
* 2009: Poliana Okimoto - 1st place overall
* 2009: Allan do Carmo - 2nd place
* 2010: Ana Marcela Cunha - 1st place overall
* 2012: Ana Marcela Cunha - 1st place overall
* 2012: Allan do Carmo - 3rd place overall
* 2013: Allan do Carmo - 3rd place overall
* 2013: Ana Marcela Cunha - 3rd place
* 2014: Ana Marcela Cunha - 1st place overall
* 2014: Allan do Carmo - 1st place overall

Brazilian athletes' podium finishes during the FINA 10K Marathon Swimming World Cup circuit:

Viedma, Argentina (February 1st)
* Poliana Okimoto, gold
* Ana Marcela Cunha, silver

Cancun, Mexico (March 5th)
* Poliana Okimoto, silver
* Ana Marcela Cunha, bronze
* Diogo Villarinho, bronze

Setúbal, Portugal (June 28th)
* Ana Marcela Cunha, gold
* Poliana Okimoto, silver
* Allan do Carmo, silver

Roberval, Canada (July 24th)
* Ana Marcela Cunha, gold

Magog, Canada (August 1st)
* Ana Marcela Cunha, gold
* Allan do Carmo, bronze

Megantic, Canada (August 9th)
* Ana Marcela Cunha, gold
* Allan do Carmo, gold

Chun'an, China (October 11th)
* Ana Marcela Cunha, gold
* Allan do Carmo, gold
* Poliana Okimoto, silver
* Diogo Villarinho, bronze

Hong Kong, China (October 18th)
* Allan do Carmo, silver
* Poliana Okimoto, silver
* Ana Marcela Cunha, bronze

Both Do Carmo and Cunha won US$20,000 for capturing the FINA World Cup season title. If Okimoto had note sat out of three Canadian stages due to her cervical spine injury, she would have undoubtedly garnered even more points in the season's rankings.

Japonês campeão mundial é suspenso após roubar câmera de jornalista

Furto envolvendo Naoya Tomita ocorreu durante os Jogos Asiáticos de Incheon

O japonês Naoya Tomita, de 25 anos, foi suspenso por 18 meses pela Federação de Natação do seu país após roubar uma câmera de um jornalista durante os Jogos Asiáticos de Incheon, na Coreia do Sul. Tomita admitiu o roubo após ser flagrado por câmeras de segurança e acabou expulso dos Jogos. O nadador só conseguiu sair do país após pagar uma multa de US$ 980 (R$ 2,3 mil), o que na verdade corresponde a 1/8 do preço sugerido da máquina, que pertencia a um jornalista sul-coreano da agência de notícias Yonhap, a agência oficial do evento. Campeão mundial em piscina curta em Dubai 2010, nos 200m peito, Tomita só poderá voltar a competir em abril de 2016, pouco antes das seletivas japonesas para os Jogos Olímpicos do Rio. Por conta da suspensão, ele está fora do Mundial de Desportos Aquáticos de Kazan (Rússia) 2015.
