Article author:



American artistic swimmer Anita Alvarez was at risk of drowning before being rescued by coach Andrea Fuentes after losing consciousness in the pool at the World Championships in Budapest on Wednesday. ..

Spanish Olympic medalist Fentes, a four-time Olympic medalist in synchronized swimming, jumped into the pool after seeing Alvarez sink to the bottom at the end of the final solo-free routine.

She was treated by her pool before being taken away on her stretcher.

It was the second time Fuentes rescued Alvarez after he jumped into the pool at last year's Olympic qualifying event and secured her safety with American swimming partner Lindi Schroeder.

"Anita is much better, she's already in the best condition. To be honest, it was a good horror," Fentes said on Wednesdayスペインの新聞マルカに語った。


"I saw no lifeguard jumping in, so I jumped into the water again. I was a little scared because she wasn't breathing, but I'm fine now. She has to rest.

Statement on the US Artistic Swimming Instagram Pageで、フェンテスは、25歳のアルバレスが金曜日のチームイベントへの参加が決定される前に、木曜日に医師によって評価されると述べました。
