American Women Heading To Another (5K) Battle

American Women Heading To Another (5K) Battle

The women’s 10K 2013 USA Swimming National Open Water Swimming Championships culminated in a great finish where every athlete gave it their best and laid it all down on the line.

USA Swimming captured the event with a camera onboard its media boat. With 400 meters to go, there were eight young women giving it everything they had. The eight women were eight possible candidates to represent America at the upcoming World Championships.

Christine Jennings bolted into the lead and 15-year-old Becca Mann willed her way on the open water national team with a late-breaking sprint.
