In today’s FINA 10 km Marathon Swimming World Cup event during the Traversée internationale du lac St-Jean week in Roberval, Quebec, Canada, Brazilian world champion Ana Marcela Cunha continued her winning ways.

But it was a typically tight race where the Brazilian superstar shines.

Kristel Köbrich of Chile led the pack and pushed ahead followed by a trio of Americans, Christine Jennings, Eva Fabian and Emily Brunemann along with Ana Marcela.

Ana Marcela bid her time and waited as the water developed a bit of chop with a chilly wind. Down the final stretch of the 6-loop race, she out-sprinted Jennings, German Angela Maurer and Fabian.

Final results:

1. Ana Marcela Cunha (BRA) 2:03:01.2
2. Christine Jennings (USA) 2:03:01.5
3. Angela Maurer (GER) 2:03:02.7
