The leaders of the team:

The Mexican open water swimmers that will represent Mexico at the next 19th FINA World Championships are in Austria in preparation for the main competition. The team leaders, Arturo Pérez Vertti, Martha Sandoval and Daniel Delgadillo are ready to have their best international competition.


Young Talent:

Apart from experienced swimmers, this team counts with young talented swimmers: Paulo Strehlke, Paulina Alanis and Montserrat Mora. It will be the first World Championships for all these teenagers. Even though Paulo Strehlke is one of the youngest in the team at only 16 years old, he enters the competition as the fastest Mexican this year in 10k (1:58). 

Joel Rodriguez, Strehlke and Paulina’s coach, is in Austria preparing his swimmers to have the best competition ever. Both open water swimmers will also participate at the FINA World Junior Open Water Championships later this year. 

According to internal sources, the team is projected to compete at the Italian Open Water Tour as preparation for Budapest. Maximiliano Strehlke, qualified for the FINA World Junior Open Water Championships, is also training with the senior team and will definitely gain some experience. He is a favorite to medal at World Juniors.
