Allan do Carmo [shown above] officially won the series title at the 2014 FINA 10K Marathon Swimming World Cup with a close second to Christian Reichert at the FINA season-ending race in Hong Kong today.

The race was close as usual and featured the fierce emerging rivalry of Brazil versus Germany within an international event. Like the FINA 10K Marathon Swimming World Cup results in Chunan Qiandaohu Lake in China last week, Brazil and Germany swept the top 5 places.

But this week, Germany’s Christian Reichert took top honors over Do Carmo. Both ended with big smiles on their faces while the rest of the field heads back home to start training for the 2015 season and the 2016 Rio Olympic 10K qualification race that will be held in conjunction with the 2015 FINA World Championships.
