The Five, Open Water Challenge in Hong Kong was held under stiff winds, but the Junior Five (250m and 400m) went off flawlessly.

The winds were tough, and made it hard to set the buoys, but the swimmers all made the course with Singha Chau and Olympic hopeful Fiona Chan took the honors for the Men’s and Women’s divisions, each winning HK$6,000,” said race director Doug Woodring about his second World Open Water Swimming Series event this year.
