Whatta Race In Miami - Swim Miami's 10K
With water temperatures of 24°C (75.2°F), there were a great mixture of many NCAA swimmers and young age-group swimmers in the venue, especially in 10K race.
In the men's 10K, there was a great five-man race that resulted in an extremely close victory of Harry Stephenson over Canada's Xavier Desharnais by the ever slightest of margins. The official times were the same down to the hundredth of a second, but the nod was given to the 18-year-old from Florida.
1. Harry Stephenson (18) 2:05:49
2. Xavier Desharnais (21) 2:05:49
