Swimming - 02. October 2007.

Valerio Cleri (ITA), wins in Shantou (CHN)

Lausanne, September 24, 2007

Amongst women, the young Brazilian Poliana Okimoto, second of the 5km and 10km of the 2006 World Championships, confirmed her ambition: she obtained her first FINA victory and will be in the list of favourites for the Olympic title. She finished two and four seconds in front of the two German favourites, respectively Britta Kamrau-Corestein and Angela Maurer, the leaders of the general standings.


In the men’s race, the Italian Valerio Cleri confirmed his success of the seventh race of the competition few weeks ago in Vienna (AUT). Spyridon Gianniotis (GRE), third in Vienna, progressed until the second place. Also worth of note is the comeback of Simone Ercoli (ITA), third, who was second of the 10km at the 2002 World Championships.
