Ferry Weertman Defends European 10k Title in Hoorn

2016 European Open Water Swimming Championships

Ferry Weertman, the male side of Netherlands’ dynamic open water duo, successfully defended his European 10km title on Sunday afternoon in front of a home-country crowd in Hoorn.

Weertman was 6 minutes slower than his winning time (1:55:20.6) at the 2014 European Championships and than his silver medal winning time, but he was lined up best for a tight finish that had the top 3 swimmers touch within a second of each other before a gap to a large finishing pack for 4th-17th.

Weertman beat out Jack Burnell of Great Britain (1:55:21.2) and Marc Antoine Olivier of France (1:55:21.6) for gold.

The podium was wide open for this year’s title, with the defending silver and bronze medalists not returning, but Italy’s Federico Vanelli was only able to repeat his 4th-place finish from a year ago.
