Saho Harada And PowerBar Emerge In The Open Water

PowerBar, the giant leader in the American energy bar market, has finally entered the open water swimming market.

The PowerBar Open Water Swimming Championships is organized by Birkirkara St. Joseph Sports Club in Malta.

Edward Caruana Dingli (26:18) and 2-time Olympic medalist Saho Harada (30:17) from Japan won the 2 km race around four 500m loops in St Paul’s Bay in the first of the series.

Harada was formerly a world-class synchronized swimmer who won a silver medal at the 2004 Athens Olympics and a bronze medal at the 2008 Beijing Olympics, but has recently emerged as an open water swimmer.

The next race of the series is another 2 km coastal sea race on June 20th. On July 4th, July 18th and August 29th, there are other 2 km races along with a longer 4 km race on August 1st and the annual 5.5 km or 11 km Malta–Gozo–Malta Open Water Swimming Competition on August 18th.
