His 22-year-old team-mate Frithjof Seidel collected his 34th World Cup experience and missed the final on Sunday. The first preliminary fight of the title fights won the Chinese Wang Zongyuan with 429.40 points.

"It was a pretty nerve-wracking, so having an unfortunate season like mine so far will make you more and more nervous," Hausding said. But the 30-year-old played out his routine and fought his way forward with the three and a halffold somersault in the third of six rounds "back in the race". No twelfth before the last round, no one wants, "said Hausding, who in." That was a bit of tournament horse South Korea still starts in singles and in synchronized jumping from the three-meter board.

"We made it extra so that he takes the one-meter competition to jump in," said coach Lutz Buschkow. Hausding has been through a difficult season so far due to injury, and he was slowed by a middle ear infection shortly before the World Cup. "He can take a mental strength," Buschkow said after the preliminary fight.

That's not my claim. I want to get a medal. "

European champion Wellbrock wants to start at the World Championships in South Korea initially over ten kilometers in the open water in Yeosu and then swim in the pool races over 800 and 1,500 meters.

Asked whether free-water swimmers are a special swimmer, Wellbrock said: "I would say they are looser." For open-water swimming, the tension before take-off is not so high, because until it really matters, you have one more hour Time." For example, Dutch Olympic champion Ferry Weertman "for a while always jumped in with a bombshell and I'm waiting for the day when a 1,500 meter swimmer jumps into the water with an ass bomb." Nobody can afford that. "

Wellbrock would recommend any long-distance swimmer in the pool to try open water swimming. "I would say that you get harder with open water swimming."

Swimming ten kilometers is a mental challenge, said the Magdeburger Wellbrock. For him, especially the last 100 meters made the open water swimming. You can not compare that to the pain you have in the pelvis, I do not want to say that the open water is more exhausting, but it's a different kind of pain Feeling is already helpful for pelvic swimming.
