Russia also won the Team Trophy with 191 points ahead of Germany (175), Ukraine (138) and Italy (124).The four quota places for next year’s Olympic Games at stake in Turin went to Germany (2/men’s 3m and 10m), Italy (women’s 10m) and Sweden (women’s 3m).Tania Cagnotto and Francesca Dallape made the fans cheer again in the final event on Sunday, when the Italians won their third successive title in the women’s 3m synchro springboard practically with their last dive (320.40 points), defeating until then leading Russians Nadezda Bazhina-Svetlana Philippova (317.13 points). Germans Katja Dieckow-Uschi Freitag took bronze (295.90 points).

The crowd here is just fantastic !"

Patrick Hausding, the “World Diver of the Year 2010”, retained the first of his two 2010 titles in the 3m springboard at the Arena European Diving Championships in Turin, Italy, on Thursday.

After the fifth round Hausding and Zakharov were still joint leaders. “My first dive could have been a little better. But after everything went well. You simply have to put your best dives at the end”, said the German who had gained medals in all five competitions in Budapest 2010. Patrick Hausding also achieved the second quota place for the 2012 Olympic Games in London after Noemi Batki (ITA) had ensured the first one by winning the women’s 10m platform on Wednesday.

Kuznetsov snatches title from Kvasha – Italy rejoices

Ukrainian Illya Kvasha’s dominance of the 1m springboard event ended on the opening day of the Arena European Diving Championships in Turin, Italy, taking place from March 8-13. The 23-year-old was striving for his fourth successive title since 2008, but Russian Evgeny Kuznetsov snatched the primacy from him. The 20-year-old from Stavropol, who finished fourth in this competition in Budapest last year, received 427.05 points, Kvasha 419.65. “A medal is not bad, but I’m a bit disappointed as I wanted to win my fourth title in a row. My second and third dives were the problem, when I didn’t perform perfectly”, commented the defeated champion. Kuznetsov admitted that he was sure of gold before his last dive: “There wasn’t much that could go wrong anymore.”

After an hour of the race 20 year-old Carrizo (ARG) had broken from the pack and taken a lead of 300-400m which he maintained for a further hour through the port section of the course before hard work by a pack of seven-eight swimmers brought them back into contention.

FINA launches improved version of its World Swimming Rankings

FINA launches improved version of its World Swimming Rankings

FINA has launched today on its official website www.fina.org a much improved version of its World Swimming Rankings’ section, bringing this important tool into a new level of accuracy, providing many new functionalities to the system, and adding new interactive possibilities to the users of this database.

From now on, the search for a given performance can be done on a more specific way, allowing a more comprehensive “image” of the result, both on the athletes and the countries’ side. This will result on an increased amount of available information (on a more “friendly” way) for all those consulting the system – swimmers, coaches, officials, administrators, media, and public at large.

Another significant difference in relation to the previous system is that FINA is directly involving its 202 National Member Federations in the inclusion of data concerning their affiliated athletes. Thanks to a secured login system, each National Federation is now invited to enter its swimmers’ personal information, as well as directly submit their results or the performances of a national meet. This data is then validated by the specialised staff running this database before the definitive entry of the information into the system.

In the months to come, an Online Meet Entry section will also be activated and will work on time for the 2011 FINA World Championships in Shanghai (CHN) and for the 2012 Olympic Games in London (GBR). Finally, in the medium term, the system will also be able to generate swimmers’ biographies, for the use of media and public in general.FINA has launched today on its official website www.fina.org a much improved version of its World Swimming Rankings’ section, bringing this important tool into a new level of accuracy, providing many new functionalities to the system, and adding new interactive possibilities to the users of this database. > FINA World Swimming Rankings

Dubai, Day 5: Lochte (USA), first ever with 7 medals at the FINA World Swimming Championships (25m)

Ryan Lochte (USA) and Mireia Belmonte Garcia (ESP) were the best swimmers at the 10th FINA World Swimming Championships (25m) in Dubai (UAE), after getting respectively seven and four medals at the Hamdan bin Mohammed bin Rashid Sports Complex. This consecration is not new to Lochte, already the “most valuable” athlete of the competition in 2006 (Shanghai) and in 2008 (Manchester). For the Spaniard, on the contrary, this is a completely new situation, after reaching the podium in the most demanding events of the programme – gold in the 200m butterfly, 200m and 40m individual medley, and silver in the 800m free. At 20, she obtained a significant breakthrough in Dubai, and will surely be one of the swimmers in evidence in the years to come. Lochte, 26, is already a confirmed star and made history in Dubai, by being the first swimmer in the history of the championships to win seven medals in the same edition of the competition.Overall, 22 countries have medalled in Dubai, and the top-5 nations includes USA (25 medals, comprising 12 gold), Russia (10 medals), Spain (8), China (14), and France (8). Four World Records were established in the five-day competition, while 57 championships records were also set.
