The Cali Condors executed to a tee in winning the mixed 400 freestyle relay during Match 10, with solid splits from all four legs leading them to victory by over a second. Their final time of 3:16.14 was also quicker than Energy Standard’s winning time from earlier in the day.
Overall, the race had two men split sub-46 and four women go sub-52.
