Valerio Cleri Wins Sprint At The King & Queen Of The Sea

Olympian Valerio Cleri just edged Chad Ho, Allan do Carmo and Trent Grimsey in the grid race at the 2011 King and Queen of the Sea extravaganza in Copacabana Beach in Brazil.

The 800m sprint was an all-out race from start to finish as Trent took it out fast and first. But Chad, Allan, Valerio and the rest of the 11-man field were on his heels. Coming around the last turn buoy with 100 meters to go, Trent took the inside track as four others swung wider. Within 50 meters to shore, five men had a line to victory.

But it was Cleari who just had a little more in the tank and stood up first before charging to the finish line.
