The men’s 10K championship race was extraordinarily strategic – and the top 10 proved their open water savvy. With experience comes wisdom in the open water, especially in such a compact course with 68 world-class competitors. And the top 10 were certainly wise men of the open water in Shanghai.

1. Spyros Gianniotis (GRE) 31 years
2. Thomas Lurz (GER) 32 years
3. Sergey Bolshakov (RUS) 28 years
4. Alex Meyer (USA) 23 years
5. Ky Hurst (AUS) 30 years
