Women's 5K World Championship Start List

The women's 5K field at the World Swimming Championships was revised with new race numbers. The 43 competitors are listed below for today's 5K race.

The beaches have been packed with people enjoying the Mediterranean climate (see photo above from the race venue).

With Rai TV covering the race live throughout Europe starting at 9:00 am Rome time (11 pm PT on Monday or 2 am ET on Tuesday morning in the US) and Twitter covering it live for others, the eyes of many will be upon the 43 open water swimmers.

Catherine Vogt, the American coach, summed up the thoughts of many of the head coaches from the 41 countries represented here at the World Championships, "We have a very strong, fast group [of swimmers] excited for the 5K race tomorrow. We've had excellent training and preparation here in Ostia and our athletes are ready to get out there and compete with the best in the world."
