Marina Garcia wins the final of the 200 breaststroke and qualifies for the World Championships

The swimmer of the RAW Super Drink team does not give option to its rivals and is imposed in the Spanish Championships.

Marina García qualified last Monday for the Gwangju (South Korea) World Championships by winning the final of the 200 breaststroke of the Spanish Championships with a time of 2:25.35.

The Catalan dominated the race from start to finish and finished first ahead of Fanny Lecluyse and the Spanish record holder of the event, Jessica Vall, who was third with a time of 2:28.49. The Belgian was the one who started pulling at the start, with Marina Garcia stuck in his wake and Jessica Vall and at the feet of his two rivals. But Garcia took the initiative in the final stretch of the first length to never let go while Vall it was coming off little by little. Lecluyse did resist the swimmer of the local team. However, Marina tightened in a few last fifty meters to put almost two seconds in the last pool to the Belgian.

Garcia exceeded the minimum globalist mark required by the technical committee of the Spanish Swimming Federation.
