Irish open water swimmer and Olympic 10k qualifier Chris Bryan finished in a great third place at 1:54.14 in today’s Euro 10k Cup in Israel.
He placed behind Sergey Bolshakov (Russia), World Championship 2011 Bronze in 10km, who won in 1:54.04 and David Davies (Great Britain), 2008, 10km Olympic Silver, all according to Chris’ own Twitter account.
The water was a toasty 23 C with 6 laps of 1.6k. The field was 28 men from seven nations.
Look forward to an upcoming Guest Article from Chris when he has time (which is rare), I don’t want to press him unnecessarily, but maybe this will serve as a gentle reminder!
His next and final target before London is another Euro Cup 10k in Portugal on June 7th.
