The UANA Junior Open Water Swimming Championships in Lake Andrea, Pleasant Prairie, Wisconsin kicked off with a great race.

16-year-old Kenna Smallegange touched out Cadence Fort of the USA in the 14-17 year-old 7.5 km race in 1:38:24.37.

Canadian head coach Mark Perry lauded Smallegange, “Kenna Smallegange swam a very mature race, slowly working her way through to first position and using the race tactics that she has been taught to great effect. It took the judges a long time to confirm the result because it was so close.”
