Mexico City 2017: Sarah Louise Rung vs. Teresa Perales
Multiple Paralympic champions to battle for gold at World Championships01 Dec 2017
Rung (L) and Perales are both multi-medallists at the Paralympics
Multiple Paralympic gold medallists Sarah Louise Rung and Teresa Perales will come together in one of the most expected head-to heads at the Mexico City 2017 World Para Swimming Championships, from 2-7 December.
They will face-off in the women’s 100m freestyle and 50m backstroke S5. Both events bring good memories for Spain’s Perales, who won silver in the former and gold in the latter at last year’s Paralympic Games in Rio, Brazil.
The 41-year-old has so far won two golds, eight silvers and seven bronzes over four World Championships.
Although she is less experienced than her rival, Rung has enjoyed outstanding success at each of the three Worlds she competed in since 2010. She reached the podium in all 15 events she took part in, claiming 11 golds, two silvers and two bronze in total.
