Linsy Heister, Dutch distance swimmer
Linsy Heister is a distance pool and open water swimmer from the Netherlands who won the 2010 World Open Water Swimming Championships 25K gold medal in Roberval, Quebec, Canada. She participated in the 2011 FINA World Championships in Shanghai, Chin, but did not start the 25K race due to the extreme heat and water temperatures that exceeded FINA's own self-imposed safety guidelines.

She is also competing on the 2012 FINA 10km Marathon Swimming World Cup pro circuit.

Career

Linsy Heister began her career in the pool specializing in freestyle. In 2005 at the Dutch championships, she earned two bronze medals in the 800 and 1500 meter freestyle. Her main focus now is open water swimming. She is the fastest woman of all-time at the Faros Maraton.

2010

She swims now (2010) at Eiffel Swimmers PSV and her trainer is Marcel Wouda. At the 2010 World Open Water Championships in the Canadian Roberval, she won a gold medal at the 25 km. In the 10 km at the European swimming championships in 2010, she also took the gold medal.

2011 FINA World Championships

Lindsy placed 20th (2:02:33.6) in the 2011 FINA World Championships in the 10K in Shanghai, China.

Warm Water Controversy

(AP) - Swimmer Linsy Heister won't defend her world title in Shanghai on the 25 km open water. Coach Marcel Wouda pulled the 23-year-old from Eindhoven Thursday back According to the coach, it is medically irresponsible to swim the longest distance at a water temperature of around 30 degrees Celsius.

"After a long discussion with medical staff we decided to withdraw Linsy" Wouda reported Thursday. "It is irresponsible to swim for five to six hours in water of about thirty degrees. Besides that it's life traetening, it would take a very long recovery afterwards."

Heister ended in the Chinese city at the ten kilometers in place twenty. According Wouda the cancellation is independent of this disappointing performance. "It's purely on medical grounds. We want our athletes to swim races safely. There are always risks, but this is something we can estimate in advance and therefor we will not start."

Wouda believes that the world swimming federation Fina should take their responsibility. "Given the death case last year, also under very hot conditions, you would think that FINA has learned an important lesson. I as coach have the opinion that the FINA should cancel the event under these circumstances. It is irresponsible."

In October 2010 the American Francis Crippen died during an open water race in the United Arab Emirates. Research showed that the high temperature of the water also caused his death. "We shouldn't put our athletes up to this. I hope there are more coaches and teams that will take a decision like we have."

Karakteristiek

In 2005 deed Linsy Heister voor het eerst mee aan de nationale 5 km race, waarbij zij zich kwalificeerde voor de EJK open water in Slovenië. Hier eindigde zij op de 14e plaats, slechts 24 seconde van de winnares.

In 2006 behaalde zij de nationale titels op de 1500 meter en 5 km in het zwembad en werd zij zeer knap zesde bij de EJK open water in Müritz, slechts 14 seconden achter de winnares en 4 seconden achter nummer 3. Daarnaast won zij in Nederland de ‘traditional’ in de Lek, Beusichem-Culemborg over 6 km.

In september 2006 werd zij uitgenodigd voor een trainingsstage in Cyprus en drie maanden later volgde een trainingskamp in Pretoria, Zuid-Afrika bij ter voorbereiding van de WK-kwalificatie begin januari 2007. Ze kwam bij de timetrial in Eindhoven op de 10 kilometer tot 2.02.52 en plaatste zich voor het WK-toernooi in Melbourne.

Vanaf dat moment is Linsy Heister niet meer weg te slaan bij de grote toernooien. Haar grote ideaal is in Londen 2012 de olympische 10 kilometer te zwemmen. Tot die tijd wil zij aan alle EK's en WK's meedoen.

De stap naar de wereldtop maakte zij in 2009 bij de WK voor de kust van Ostia, een voorstad van Rome. Twee maal eindigde zij als zesde. De grote triomf kwam bij de WK in het Canadese Roberval. Wereldkampioen 25 kilometer. Noeste trainingsarbeid leidde to een fantastische beloning!
