PR 106 - FINA rewards the best aquatic athletes of 2016

Monday, December 5, 2016

In a spectacular ceremony at the Ceasar's Hotel in Windsor (CAN), FINA paid today its annual tribute to the best athletes of 2016 during its FINA/Alisports World Aquatics Gala - "Soirée des Etoiles". The group included the best male and female competitor in each of the aquatic disciplines, with the 2016 Olympic Games in Rio largely determining the outcome of the evening.

In Swimming, Michael Phelps (USA) and Katinka Hosszu (HUN) were the best of the year, after their outstanding results in Brazil - six medals (including five gold) for the North American and four podium presences (comprising three titles) for the Magyar great. The best Olympic swimming performances went to Adam Peaty (GBR) and Katie Ledecky (USA).
