FINA said in a statement: “We can confirm that Anita Alvarez should no longer compete. The health and safety of athletes must always come first. Although this decision will be disappointing for the athlete, it is the best choice for her at the moment. FINA is delighted that Anita Alvarez has made such a strong recovery and we hope to see her again in the following seasons.“.

Bela Merworthy, the head of the Hungarian health agency, told the Spanish newspaper AS: “There are many types of athletes. Some people adapt well to changes in oxygen and carbon dioxide levels. But others are more sensitive. Alvarez is one of them. This sport is probably not for her“.

On June 22, swimmer Alvarez sank to the bottom of the lake due to unconsciousness during the competition in the individual freestyle final. Sensing an abnormality in the student’s test, the head coach of the American synchronized swimming team Andrea Fuentes immediately jumped into the pool. As she was about to pull Alvarez to the surface, a new lifeguard slowly jumped in to help. The 25-year-old athlete was resuscitated immediately at the competition site and regained consciousness later.

Alvarez lost hope of winning the world championship after a terrible incident.

On June 23, coach Fuentes posted a video on Instagram in which members of the American swimming team clapped and smiled as the doctor explained Alvarez’s test results. In addition, some photos shared on social networks show that the female athlete is having fun with her teammates after this near-death incident. Anita Alvarez’s health is now stable.

Female athlete Anita Alvarez shared after the incident: “I am very grateful to have Fuentes as my coach. I remember it was my best performance ever. I worked until the end and then when it was over, I didn’t feel right. That’s all I can remember“.
