The US Open Water 10k Nationals were held in  Miromar Lakes, Florida and saw what’s described as a photo finish for the women. After biding her time in the field, former CAT swimmer Becca Mann made a bold move late in the race to take the lead and then barely held off Haley Anderson in what was a photo finish. Race favorite Ashley Twichell placed a close third.

With that win, Becca will be on the World Team this summer and if she places in the top 10 there, she will earn a place at the 2016 Rio Games.

Other swimmers from the Sunshine State finished well:

8. Stephanie Peacock

18. Summer Finke

With a grueling 2+ hours in the warm lake water, several swimmers did not finish. For more action, following @FlaSwimNetwork on Twitter.
