This Thursday, at the world swimming championships, the Frenchwoman Marie Wattel took seventh place in the final of the 100 meter freestyle.
No miracle for Marie Wattel. Eighth and last time of the semi-finals of the 100 meters freestyle, at the world swimming championships, which take place near Budapest in Hungary, for the sixth day of competition, the French grabbed a small place this Thursday during the final, finishing in seventh position. Part water line number eight, the Habs quickly started the work, at the level of the legs, but that did not prevent her from finding herself detached from the head. Far from the bend, the second length was rather complicated for the swimmer, who therefore finished a good distance from the winner of the day.
The title was won by an Australian, in the person of Mollie O’Callaghan, now only 18 years old. This is already his second title won on the side of Budapest in Hungary, after that won with the Australian relay during the 4×100 meters freestyle, no later than this Saturday. The podium was completed by Sweden’s Sarah Sjoestroem, who won the silver medal, while American Torri Huske had to settle for bronze. No time to procrastinate for Marie Wattel, engaged, a little later in the evening, in the semi-finals of the 50-meter butterfly, alongside her compatriot Mélanie Henique.
