However, Scott finished 10th overall, while Winter finished 21st overall in the event. Soroya Simmons ended 4th in the 5 000m, coming 10th overall.Coach Stephanie Fraser, commenting on the performances, said, “I’m very proud of the results and I expected them to do well.” She was also proud of the times they did.“I knew it would be difficult, especially the start of the race where it is a scramble to get into the water. This water had more waves that were stronger,” finished Fraser.It is hoped that looking past this meet, the swimmers would have more avenues for open water swimming on the international circuit.
