"This race was very tough. Sometimes, I say that in the open water it is a bigger fight than amongst the water polo players. In water polo, you have the rules, you have penalties, and you have fouls. But here, you have a yellow and red cards, but you cannot see anything under the water."

  • Bronze, Ana Marcela Cunha (BRA), Open Water, Women’s 5km


"Going to Paris with another medal is nothing but positive. The ultimate goal is to be Olympic medallists and doing what we did today, it is possible, in my mind at least."

"It was a very strong race. I tried to push, push, push to take the gold medal, but in the last 20 metres, I was dead, and the other two French guys kept pushing. But all in all, I'm happy with the result."

  • Bronze, Domenico Acerenza (ITA), Open Water, Men’s 5km

  • Bronze, Gustavo Sanchez (COL), Artistic Swimming, Men’s Solo Free


"It means so much and I feel like I am getting better with age. I am still learning so much about the sport. I enjoy the journey. It gets hard, it is a little bit more physical, but I love this stuff. I love the ‘wind chop’ and Qatar has managed a really good championships. I am just grateful to be here."

  • Silver, Chelsea Gubecka (AUS), Open Water, Women’s 5km


"In Fukuoka, I saw this event from my couch. I was dreaming about this moment ever since I had my knee injury. This is the conclusion of one chapter and we can start all over again."

  • Gold, Giorgio Minisini (ITA), Artistic Swimming, Men Solo Free

  • Efstathios Kalogeropoulos (GRE), Water Polo, Men’s Group Stage

  • Maxwell Irving (USA), Water Polo, Men’s Group Stage


"After Tokyo, I didn’t compete in any big events for two years so I’m happy to be back. I need to focus on myself and work on keeping myself calm when I’m on the diving board. I see my colleague Wang both as a friend and as an opponent, and this pushes me to train harder."

  • Silver, Siyi Xie (CHN), Diving, Men’s 3m Springboard

  • Gold, Sharon van Rouwendaal (NED), Open Water, Women’s 5km
