Africa Zamorano and Carmen Weiler, to Paris 2024 with the Spanish Championship


The Spanish swimmers África Zamorano and Carmen Weiler this Thursday achieved tickets to the Paris 2024 Olympic Games in the 200 meter backstroke, while the world champion Hugo González also shone in Palma de Mallorca.

After an intense morning, with two places for three swimmers, Weiler won in the afternoon and also with a Spanish record (beating Duane da Rocha’s 2:09.13 of 2014 with 2:08.89). In addition, África Zamorano took the long-awaited Olympic ticket with the national silver and again lowering the morning’s minimum (2:09.75).

Meanwhile, the world champion Hugo González was intractable in the men’s 200 backstroke and shattered the minimum he already had from Q1, also breaking the Spanish record, with 1:54.51, demolishing the 1:54.92 of Ashwin Wildeboer with the polyurethane, who precisely he hung the gold on him.
