Ferry Weertman Qualifies To Defend His Olympic Title
Courtesy of FINA, Yeosu EXPO Ocean Park, Gwangju, South Korea. Ferry Weertman did not win the 2019 FINA World Championships – as expected from many – but he swam well enough to defend his 2016 Olympic 10K Marathon Swim title next year in Tokyo. While German rival Florian Wellbrock won the FINA World Championships 10 km marathon swim in Korea, eyes and expectations were still on the renowned Dutchman. Silver medalist Marc-Antoine Olivier said of Weertman, “If you want to beat Ferry, you will have to work very hard. Ferry is a world champion and Olympic gold medallist and everyone knows he is an outstanding athlete with a great finish. Today we had a tactic to keep the speed of the race very high and perhaps that surprised Ferry, but he is going to Tokyo just like us.” Watch the remaining races at the FINA World Championships live here – and Weertman next year at the Olympic 10 km marathon swimming final in Odaiba Marine Park in Tokyo.
