font size    

Ecuadorian swimmer Marco Camargo and Panama's Edgar Crespo became the only two South Americans to win medals at the under-17 swimming World Cup, which ended on Sunday in Brazilian city Rio de Janeiro.

Camargo won Ecuador's only medal on the last day of the Cup: a bronze of the 200 meters medley. His time was two minutes four seconds and 41 hundredths. Austria's Dinko Jukic won gold, with 2:01.64 and Malaysia's Daniel William Bego won silver with 2:02.13.

"I am very happy about receiving a medal, and it doesn't matter that it is a bronze," said Camargo. "The most important thing is that I got a place on the podium," he said, adding that he hoped to take part in the 2007 Pan-American Games.

Crespo, who won bronze in the 50 meters breast stroke, with a time of 29:13 seconds, told media that he was not satisfied with bronze, "But I am proud of getting on to the podium".

Italy's Mattia Pesce won the race with 28.43 seconds, and Serbia and Montenegro's Caba Siladji got silver with 29.05.
