TV Coverage Of The King Of The Sea Challenge

Globo TV‘s spectacular 2-hour live television coverage with seven cameras – including helicopter aerial footage – of the King of the Sea Challenge (Rei Do Mar Desafio) can be seen here.

Winner Trent Grimsey pulled a classic stealth move on the third loop.

Trent moved 30 meters to the left of the lead pack – out of eyeshot – and then picked up his pace to 88 strokes per minute with a six-beat kick – to open up a 45-meter lead which he never relinquished.
