SOFLO’s Valentina Artemeva Takes Bronze, Qualifies For World Championships At Russian Nationals

By Sharon Robb

April 20, 2015—After a few encouraging words from her coach Chris Anderson, South Florida Aquatic Club’s Valentina Artemeva qualified for the July 24-Aug. 9 World Aquatic Championships in Kazan, Russia on the opening day of the Russian National Swimming Championships in Moscow.

Artemeva, 28, of Novosibirsk Region, took the bronze medal in the 50-meter breaststroke, the first of her three events, after finishing third in 31.31.

The sprint race was a tune-up for her remaining two events, the 200-meter breaststroke and 100-meter breaststroke, her signature event.

Yuliya Efimova of the Tyimen Region, coming off her drug doping suspension, won the gold in 30.39. Efimova started the meet with the world best in 30.70 in prelims. She bettered her time in semifinals in 30.41 and finished with her third world best of the day in 30.39. It was her first national title since the suspension.

Victoria Zeinel Gunes of Turkey took the silver in 31.24. With that time, Efimova is now ranked No. 1 in the world in both the 50 and 100-meter breaststroke.

Artemeva, who has been training with SOFLO’s pro team including three-time Jamaican Olympian and breaststroke world record holder Alia Atkinson and Bermuda national champion Lisa Blackburn, is the current European champion in the 50- and 100-meter breaststroke (short course).

She is also world record holder in fin swimming and former world champion in the 200-meter surface finswimming and bronze medalist in the 100-meter surface finswimming.

SOFLO’s Colorado, Artemeva Win On Day Three Of Speedo Champions Series At Plantation Aquatic Complex

By Sharon Robb

March 14, 2015—Two-time Colombian Olympian and national record holder Carolina Colorado swam her fastest time in three years to win the 100-meter backstroke on Day Three of the Speedo Sectional Championships Saturday night at Plantation Aquatic Complex.

In an exciting race, Colorado, 27, outsprinted Erin Voss, 16, of Greater Holyoke YMCA to win by 1/100th of a second in 1:01.75 at the Speedo Champions Series Southern Zone South Sectional Championships.

Colorado of South Florida Aquatic Club came close to her career-best of 1:01.41. Colorado was also fourth in the 50-meter butterfly in 27.49.

“That was a pretty big accomplishment for her,” SOFLO coach Chris Anderson said. “She was ecstatic. She didn’t think she could do that but that’s what we were suppose to do. The hard work is paying off.”

SOFLO teammate Valentina Artemeva of Russia won the 50-meter breaststroke in 31.66 and came back to go a best time in the 50-meter butterfly in 27.90 to finish sixth overall.

“I was very happy with Valentina’s swim and she was happy as well,” Anderson said. “To win and then come back and do a best time in the 50 fly with a wonderful start is great. The work in the gym is paying off. She went 1:11.55 in the relay.”

SOFLO finished fourth in the women’s 400-meter medley relay in 4:29.31 with Melissa Marinheiro, Valentina Artemeva, Kathleen Golding and Kelley Heron.

“I know it’s hard but Valentina is swimming more events and competing more,” Anderson said. “She is pushing her body further than she has in the past but it will pay off down the road.”

Bermuda national champion Lisa Blackburn won the consolation final of the 50-meter breaststroke in 34.14. At 43, Blackburn is the oldest swimmer in the field.

SOFLO teammate Jessica Rodriguez, 16, was seventh in 35.61. Elise Larin, 13, one of the youngest swimmers in the meet, was seventh in the “D” final in 37.56.

Olympic gold medalist Claire Donahue, training with SOFLO, was second in the 50-meter butterfly, just 1/10th behind Sviatlana Khakhlova of Club Seminole, 26.85-26.86.

Kathleen Golding, 14, was sixth in the 200-meter individual medley in 2:22.97, just getting out-touched by Lindsey Swartz, 18, of Pine Crest.

Golding was also eighth in the 400-meter freestyle in 4:29.79. Teammate Melissa Marinheiro was sixth in 4:27.83.

Colombian Jorge Murillo-Valdes and Jamaican Timothy Wynter were SOFLO’s highest finisher in the men’s competition.

Murillo-Valdes was second in the 50-meter breaststroke in 28.63. Wynter was fourth in the 100-meter backstroke in 58.93 and Marc Rojas was fifth in 30.25.

“We had people in all the heats, it was a pretty solid night,” Anderson said.

CJ Kopecki was 12th in the 400-meter freestyle in a best time 4:14.42, a drop of 10.01.

“Jorge had a good swim being unshaved and unrested. CJ Kopecki is having huge time drops. Our younger level senior athletes are coming together.”

It was an all-international night with swimmers from nine countries each winning an individual event in the women’s and men’s competition.

Club Seminole and Auburn Aquatics each had two winners in the men’s races.

Belarus’ Pavel Sankovich won the 100-meter backstroke in 56.47 and Club Seminole teammate Mateo DeAngulo of Colombia won the 400-meter freestyle in 3:57.50.

Former Florida Gold Coast swimmer Felipe Lima of Auburn Aquatics won the 50-meter breaststroke in 27.93 and teammate Marcelo Chierighini won the 50-meter freestyle in 22.97. Both swimmers are Brazilian.

Azura Florida Aquatics has all but wrapped up the combined team title with 665 points. Seacoast has 548 points and SOFLO is third with 545.

Azura also leads the men’s team standings with 552. Phoenix Swimming is second with 325 and SOFLO is fifth with 198.

Seacoast Swimming and SOFLO are battling it out in the women’s competition. Seacoast leads with 391 and SOFLO has 347.

All three SOFLO places are the team’s highest showing in the meet’s history.

Orlando Arena Pro Swim Series Good Experience For SOFLO Swimmers

By Sharon Robb

February 13, 2015—South Florida Aquatic Club swimmers are gaining experience every time they step on the blocks at the Orlando Arena Pro Swim Series.

On Friday, SOFLO had mixed results during prelims and finals at the YMCA Aquatic Center.

Jamaican Olympian Alia Atkinson, after winning the 100-meter breaststroke on Thursday, faded to sixth in the 200-meter breaststroke in 2:32.31.

“She’s feeling the effects of her lack of training and last night’s race,” said SOFLO head coach Chris Anderson.

SOFLO teammate Valentina Artemeva made “D” final and swam 2:43.42. It was one of her fastest times in a few years.

“After her morning swim, this was a better swim for her tonight,” Anderson said. “She has far more potential.”

Jessica Rodriguez, 16, had a solid 200-meter breaststroke in 2:45.92.

Despite not feeling well, Jamaican Timothy Wynter swam under a minute in the 100-meter backstroke. He went 59.22 in prelims to make “C” finals and went 59.20 in finals.

Julien Pinon got in two 400-meter freestyle swims and turned in a best time in a backstroke time trial in 1:03.

One of the biggest highlights of the meet for SOFLO is being represented by four USA Swimming officials.

Allan Golding, Steve Swanson, Jose Carrion and Hector Acevedo, all swim parents, are all working the meet. They are the only officials from the Florida Gold Coast at the three-day meet.

In one of the big meet highlights on Friday night:

Elizabeth Beisel, still nursing a groin injury, won her first event. The University of Florida alum who trains with the Gator Swim Club took the lead in the 400-meter freestyle at the halfway mark and pulled away to win in 4:10.99.

The two-time Olympian has been struggling with the injury since the Austin Pro Swim Series when she pulled her groin during the 400-meter individual medley, an event she scratched from Thursday night.

After a month off, physical therapy and rehab, Beisel, 22, showed she is back in a big way. She was able to negative split the race in 2:05.5 and 2:05.55.

Beisel has been training almost entirely freestyle which helped her to reel in the field and maintain her series points lead picking up five points and win $1,000.

“I’m just a racer and I think I came out tonight even though I wasn’t feeling my best,” Beisel said.

Molly Hannis of Tennessee Aquatics won in a career-best 2:26.80, seventh best time in the world. Katie Hoff of Hurricane Aquatics was fifth in 2:32.13.

In championship finals:

Women’s 200-meter butterfly: Canadian Audrey Lacroix, 31, won her second event of the meet by nearly two seconds in 2:10.37. Caitlin Leverenz, 23, of Cal Aquatics was second in 2:11.98. Venezuela’s Andreina Pinto, 23, of Gator Swim Club was eighth in 2:16.15. “I liked the way my first 100 felt, I have to work on the second 100,” Lacroix said. “It is always nice to win and to swim against top swimmers like Caitlin Leverenz. This helps me for my national trials in a few weeks.”

Men’s 200-meter butterfly: Viktor Bromer, 21, of Denmark, who qualified by six seconds in prelims (1:57.00), wins in 1:57.32, fifth fastest time in the world this year. Gator Swim Club’s Sebastien Rousseau was third in 2:00.58. Luiz Ribeiro Pereira of Azura was seventh in 2:04.74. “I was a bit faster this morning but I am pretty happy about it since this is part of our training camp.” Eight different countries were represented in the final.

Women’s 50-meter freestyle: Bolles alum and Bahamian Olympian Arianna Vanderpool-Wallace, 24, of SwimMAC, quick off the blocks, won by more than a half second in 24.85, fourth best time in the world this year. Svetlana Khakhlova, 30, of Club Seminole was third in 25.66. “I just try to think about going into the water as clean as I can,” Vanderpool-Wallace said. “I am not No. 1 yet and that’s where I want to be. Until then I am going to keep pushing.”

Men’s 50-meter freestyle: The race was delayed because of a broken foot ledge on Lane 5, but that didn’t seem to bother Brazilian Bruno Fratus, who won in 22.34.

Women’s 100-meter backstroke: Mie Nielsen, 18, of Denmark and Dominique Bouchard, 23, of Canada, in sync as they went into the wall, tied to win in 1:00.55.

Men’s 100-meter backstroke: World champion Junya Koga, 27, of Club Wolverine knocked off defending Olympic champion Matt Grevers to win in 53.97. Arkady Vyatchanin, 30, of New York Athletic Club was second in 54.23 and Grevers thrd in 54.29. Pavel Sankovich of Club Seminole won the “B” final in 55.69.

Men’s 200-meter breaststroke: Cody Miller of Badger Swim Club swept the breaststroke events, winning by more than a body length in a career-best 2:10.28, fastest time in the world this year. “I think of myself more of a 200 swimmer,” Miller said. “I really wanted to break 2:10. It was a good swim and a best time. I have more in the tank for sure.

Men’s 400-meter freestyle: Michael McBroom, 23, of The Woodlands outsprinted early leader Conor Dwyer, 26, of Trojan Swim Club to win in 3:50.38-3:50.43. Matt De Angulo, 24, of Club Seminole was sixth in 3:57.71. Zane Grothe, 22, of Club Seminole was ninth in 3:56.22. Franco Lupoli, 20, of Azura was tenth in 3:59.32. “I love racing, this is the fun part to race,” McBroom said. “I was just planning on coming back hard and luckily it worked out that way.”

800-meter freestyle relay: 1.Mexico 7:43.48, 2. Aalborg 7:47.86, 3. Team Ontario 7:48.24, 4. Sarasota YMCA 7:48.52.
