Angela Maurer, at the age of 44, became one of the oldest swimmers in history to win a leg on the FINA UltraMarathon Swim Series.

44-year-old Maurer won the 20 km marathon swim in Novi, Croatia on August 31st.

Maurer described her victory by 17 seconds over another veteran Alice Franco of Italy, “It was a super race with a wonderful scenery. It was fun. What more could you ask for? After I missed the FINA World Cup qualification, I am very happy about the 3rd place finish in the 10 km race at the European LE Cup in Lake Ohrid. So I spontaneously decided to race after an invitation from the organizer. 13 years after my last participation in this race, I returned to the place where I was always successful.”
