Looking At The Results In Santos

Looking At The Results In Santos

The difference between first and second in the FINA 10KM Marathon Swim World Cup race (Maratona Aquática Internacional de Santos) in Santos, Brazil was ever so close.

Russia’s Evgeny Drattsev finished in 2:14:12:03 over Chad Ho’s 2:14:12:44 and Allan do Carmo’s 2:14:13:00.

From first-hair reports, Chad was coming in strongly, but slightly misjudged his touch in the ocean, givin Evgeny the ever-so-slight edge.

Globsport TV‘s coverage of the close finish can be seen here. Stay tuned for the final results that may be posted today after confirmation by FINA.
