Without a doubt, Brazilian Olympian Allan Do Carmo, American Olympian Jordan Wilivmovsky and British Jack Burnell will be in the lead pack at the 2016 Rio Olympic Games marathon swim next summer.

It is even quite within the realm of possibility that the trio will be fighting at the end for a spot on the podium.

But you never quite know what will happen at the end of the race – or a season. With 197 of the world’s fastest open water swimmers competing in the FINA/HOSA 10K Marathon Swimming World Cup, it was bound to be an exciting season.

The excitement literally started with the first race and never let up throughout the season – until the very last stroke in Hong Kong where Christian Reichert won the 2015 FINA/HOSA 10K Marathon Swimming World Cup title in the closest race possible over Allan Do Carmo.

The season-long series over 10 races around the world literally came down to the last stroke as Reichert just barely touched out Do Carmo to win his first career FINA World Cup title.
