Chad Ho Wins 2010 World Cup Title

The final men’s 2010 FINA 10KM Marathon Swimming World Cup rankings were released by FINA.

Chad Ho, a nominee for the 2010 World Open Water Swimming Man of the Year award, won his first overall series title with steady performances all year from Brazil to Dubai.

As the first person from the African continent to win the title, Chad gained an important boost for the upcoming 2011 World Swimming Championships – the qualifier for the 2012 London Olympics 10K Marathon Swim.

Note: only the top five completed the minimum number of races on the circuit and, as such, are ranked before swimmers who have a higher number of points.
