Florent Manaudou withdraws from Herning 2013 because of shoulder injury


Press release from LEN

After missing the 50m free World Record established by his compatriot Amaury Leveaux (44.94) by just 0.08 sec at the French nationals in Dijon, Florent Manaudou had to cancel his participation at the 17th European Short Course Swimming Championships due to a shoulder injury. The younger brother of the now retired 400m freestyle Athens Olympic gold medallist Laure Manaudou, Florent originally entered the 50m and 100m freestyle, the 50m fly, 50m breast and 100m IM races in Herning. In the absence of Florent Manaudou few of the most awaited clashes cannot take place. The Frenchman would have staged magnificent duels against Russia’s Vladimir Morozov as both of them posted excellent results recently, only 0.03 sec separated them in the world ranks in the 50m free and only 0.01sec in the 100m
