Andrea Fuentes, who was born in Tarragona and has been a U.S. coach since 2018 immediately realized the danger Anita was in and jumped into the water to avoid a misfortune. The pool is almost the second home of the new coach. When she was competing she won four Olympic medals: two silver medals in Beijing in 2008 and a silver and a bronze in London in 2012.

She has always been a fighter, ever since she was born, as she tells in her biography: “I was born on April 7, 1983, with three turns of umbilical cord around my neck. I think that’s when I started freediving and you could say that was my first contact with the ‘synchro’,” she says.

The faces of the public and the U.S. team were of maximum tension and fear because they did not know what was happening to their teammate. Synchronized swimming events require maximum attention and stress and that may have influenced the fainting that has had the competitor. In addition, the heat has also influenced her fainting.
