Alex Fong Lik Sun and Mary Dick Yuen Kwoh won the 13th annual 15 km Clean Half Extreme Marathon Swim in Hong Kong.

Race director Doug Woodring said, “It was a stellar day – one of the hottest and least windy of all 13 years. We had a great Clean Half amidst the most crazy human scenario in Hong Kong the night before with the entire subway system shut down. It was a tricky situation. Of course, the ocean was still open, and we had 100% turnout on a hot and windless day.”

Over 16 solos where three swimmers did the 30 km Double Clean Half: Alex Fong Lik Sun, Edie Hu and Daniel Vanderhave.
