Strasbourg is the place to be this week


Championnats de France de natation describes the upcoming French nationals and World championship trials as “a firepower in men’s freestyle events that is hard to find just about anywhere else in the world”, with Alain Bernard, Amaury Leveaux, Fred Bousquet, Fabien Gilot, William Meynard and Yannick Agnel in the short to middle distances, and Sebastien Rouault, Anthony Pannier, Xavier Leprete and Mads Glæsner in the longer distances.

In backstroke you have Camille Lacourt, Jérémy Stravius, Benjamin Stasilius, Pierre Roger and Aschwin Faber-Wildeboer, and in breaststroke there is for instance Hugues Duboscq and Igor Borysik, and in butterfly Amaury Leveaux and Frédérick Bousquet.

In women’s events, hot names are for instance Inge Dekker and Femke Heemskerk from the Netherlands, Jeanette Ottesen, Lotte Friis and Rikke Møller Pedersen from Denmark, and of course a lot of world class French women like Camille Muffat, Aurore Mongel, Coralie Balmy, Alexianne Castel, Alexandra Putra, Diane Bui Duyet and Lara Grangeon.
