Olympian Andrew Gemmell pulled out another impressive 10 km marathon swim win in Hawaii at the 2014 Junior Pan Pacific Swimming Championships at Ulua Beach on Maui.
Like his most recent victory at the USA Swimming National Open Water Swimming Championships in Southern California in June, Gemmell pulled away from the field down the stretch to comfortably and impressively win over a quality field by over a minute.
