The Royal Spanish Swimming Federation (RFEN) named five athletes (three women and two men) to compete in the Open Water Swimming competition of Barcelona 2013 at the Port of Barcelona.

Erika Villaécija who finished tenth in the 10K at Shanghai 2011 and eighth at London 2012, will lead the Spanish open water swimming team to Barcelona 2013. Villaécija’s team members are Yurema Requena, Margarita Domínguez, Miguel Ángel Rozas and Thomas Snelson.

Domínguez will compete in the 5 and 25K events, Requena in the 5 and 10K, and Villaécija, who will also participate in the swimming competitions at the Palau Sant Jordi, in the 10K. In the men’s category, Rozas and Snelson will compete in the 5 and 10K races.

Kiko Hervás, who is one of Spain’s best open water swimmers in history, was not able to prepare the season well due to various injuries. However, he has been named technical delegate of the Spanish team.

The Spanish squad will also participate in the team event on 25 July, featuring three swimmers, including two men and one woman in most cases. The Open Water Swimming competition of the 15th FINA World Championships Barcelona 2013 will be held from 20 to 27 July at Moll de la Fusta (Port of Barcelona).
