Florian Wellbrock To Double Up In the Pool After Germany Team Was Announced For Paris 2024

Florian Wellbrock will take on the 800 and 1500 freestyle as well as the open water at Paris 2024 after the Germany team was announced for the Olympics that start next month.

Wellbrock had initially qualified only for the 1500 in the pool with Sven Schwarz and Oliver Klemet taking the slots for the 800.

However, Klemet will compete in the open water, which will be held in the River Seine, and the 400 free with Wellbrock taking up the second spot in the 16-length event in which he won silver at the 2022 World Championships in Budapest and was fourth in Tokyo.

The 26-year-old had already booked his spot on the Germany team courtesy of his 1500 silver medal behind Daniel Wiffen at the 2024 World Championships in February.

Lukas Märtens , who rattled the 400 free world record in 3:40.33 at the national trials in April, is entered into the 200/400 free, 200 backstroke and 4×100 and 4×200 free relays.

Leonie Beck, the double world open water champion at the 2023 worlds, Isabel Gose – triple medallist at Doha 2024 – and world 100 fly champion Angelina Köhler will also be part of the charge for the podium in Paris.

Anna Elendt, who won 100m breaststroke silver at Budapest 2022, will race in the individual event in the French capital despite only initially qualifying for the relay.

So too Luca Nik Armbruster in the 100 fly although his participation in the individual event is subject to the allocation of a quota place by World Aquatics.
