Caroline Jouisse Won Her First FINA Gold At Maratona del Golfo Capri-Napoli

Caroline Laure Jouisse of France won the second leg of the 2021 FINA UltraMarathon Swim Series. The 27-year-old won her first career race at the 36 km Maratona del Golfo Capri-Napoli on the FINA professional marathon swimming circuit from the Isle of Capri to the mainland of Napoli in Italy.

Similar to the men’s winner Alessio Occhipinti, it was only a matter of time for Jouisse to capture her first career gold medal. Today was that day. Wearing a wetsuit per the FINA regulations on water temperature, she beat teammate Lisa Pou and Italian Rebecca Talanti with plenty of room to spare.
