History of Aquathlon

Aquathlon is a martial art and combat sport in the water and under the water. The origins of the name, 'Aquathlon' are 'Aqua' - water and 'Athlon' - wrestling. The object of Aquathlon is wrestling between two wrestlers wearing masks, fins, ankle bands and ribbons. They wrestle under the water and on the surface in order to tear off their opponent's ribbon from one of his ankle bands.

Grands favoris de l'épreuve, Margot Garabedian et Vincent Luis ont éclaboussé de leur classe la 16e édition de l'aquathlon de Vittel, s'imposant avec une grande autorité.

En l'absence de Cassandre Beaugrand et de Jeanne Lehair, qui avaient dominé les précédentes éditions, Margot Garabedian avait, il est vrai, le chemin libre. Arrivée en finale sans avoir puisé dans ses réserves, la Néo-Autunoise n'a pas connu d'émotions dans l'ultime acte. Sortie de l'eau avec une légère d'avance sur Lola Bachet, Margot a rapidement lâché à pied la Messine, filant vers une facile victoire.
Chez les garçons également, le futur vainqueur était arrivé en finale frais comme un gardon. De toute façon, sur le papier, on ne voyait personne pour inquiéter Vincent Luis. Un seul homme réussira finalement à rester un peu dans son sillage lors de cette dernière course de la journée, Thomas Sayer. Deuxième en 2012 et 3e en 2013, le Messin est un grand habitué de l'épreuve. Sorti de l'eau en même temps que le champion de France, Thomas est resté une centaine de mètres dans le sillage du Génovéfain à pied avant de le laisser filer vers la victoire. Sans se désunir pour autant, le Lorrain gardera finalement très facilement la place de dauphin. Tri Mag

2015 ITU Aquathlon World Championships - Elite Women's Highlights

Russia ruled the day in the women’s race with strong swimmer Anastasia Abrosimova clocking in first followed by teammate Elena Danilova. Abrosimova set the pace on the one-lap 750m swim along with compatriot Anastasia Gorbunova and Great Britain’s Hannah Kitchen. But the pair couldn’t hang on to Abrosimova’s blistering tempo on the run and fell behind. Instead it was Danilova that kicked into turbo to pick off women until she ran herself into second place, follow by Long Hoi (MAC) in third.

7 km and 200 meters are no big deal unless ... water temperature is 12.2 C (54F), and wind chill stands at 7-9 C.
