Peru 2018 South American Swimming Championship is qualifier for the Lima 2019 Pan American Games
Swimming, open water, artistic swimming, diving and water polo are the sports disciplines in this competition.
All is ready for the Peru 2018 South American Championship to be held from October 30 to November 12 with 600 athletes from 12 countries. The best athletes of this important event, organized by Peruvian Swimming Federation, will qualify for the Lima 2019 Pan American Games.
The Peruvian artistic swimming team is completing its last training routines in preparation for the start of the competition this Wednesday at 17:00 in the Olympic Pool at the Campo de Marte.
Under the instructions of the coach Vilma Romero, the 11 athletes have been undergoing a rigorous work plan every day from 6:30 to 12:00. During their training we can appreciate the music that they will use in their “solo”, “duet”, “team” and “combination” events.
It is important to highlight that teams from Argentina and Brazil have already arrived in Lima, completing the group that will take part in the South American competition with teams from Colombia, Venezuela and Chile.
In the same way, the diving team continues training twice a day, at10:00am and at 6:00 am, in order to perform a remarkable presentation.
The Peruvian national team, coached by Alfredo Borges, is training with the support of a harness so the athletes can achieve a greater degree of difficulty when performing the jump and twisting.
Open water swimming events will be held at the Club de Regatas Lima beach No. 1, from October 31 to November 3. Technique, dance, flexibility, beauty and, of course, the figures and routines are the artistic swimming attraction; these will take place in the pool of Campo de Marte, from October 31 to November 3.
Likewise, the diving pool of the Callao Regional Village has platforms and springboards all set for diving events. Finally, the water polo competitions will be carried out in the Olympic Pool in Trujillo.
