Swimming: Dutchwoman Van Rouwendaal wins 10km world title

Dutchwoman Sharon Van Rouwendaal was crowned world champion in the 10 km open water event for the second time in her career on Saturday at the Doha Swimming World Championships. At the end of a very tactical race, the 30-year-old swimmer, Olympic champion in 2016, won in 1 hour 57 min 26 sec.

She edged out the Spaniard Maria de Valdes, while the bronze went to the Portuguese Angelica Andre. The reigning Olympic champion, Brazilian Ana Marcela Cunha, took fifth place, four seconds from the lead. The first thirteen of the race, contested in the bay of the Old Port of Doha, took the opportunity to validate their ticket for the Paris Olympic Games in six months.
