Chad Ho returned to his familiar position on top of the awards podium at th 2017 Sanlam Cape Mile at South Africa’s Eikenhof Dam.

After getting upset by Matthew Meyer at the 44th annual aQuellé Midmar Mile, Ho came back strong to out-sprint visiting American Chip Peterson.

The two former world champions (Ho in the 5 km and Peterson in the 10 km) swam neck-and-neck the entire mile. “Third time’s the charm,” said Ho who was runner-up to either Danie Marais or Myles Brown. “I really wanted to have a good race and impress today. I knew that it would be fast. I just kept an eye out and stuck with Chip. I am over the moon with the victory. The Sanlam Cape Mile is an awesome event. I will definitely be back next year.”
