The Italian got on a globe record program till the last train and set up a brand-new European document.

Wellbrock satisfied with the bronze medal

Wellbrock is not let down with the bronze medal in spite of the missed defending the title: I head out extremely completely satisfied with the bronze medal, stated the Magdeburg. At a World Cup, especially with this field, it is never a matter of training course to hop on the podium. Rival Paltrinieri did great. I recognized that he began quickly-but that he began so quickly, I didn’t anticipate that.

On top of that, Olympic champion Finke from the USA was still simply in advance of Wellbrock. The bobby eated me such as this on the last track, stated Wellbrock, that was the very first time that I swam beside him. This is unbelievable!

2nd podium at the Globe Mug

For Wellbrock it was the second medal after silver over 800 meters freestyle. His training colleague Lukas Märtens, that had come to be over 400 meters second, took fourth area. In the 2nd World Cup week, Wellbrock begins in three freestyle competitors with possibilities of winning.
