1. France, 54:05.90
Marc-Antoine Olivier: Open water swimming is kind of an individual sport so actually it is fun to work with your teammates. Every time we take the cap our goal is to win outside. I think we all swam really well and we swam the races how we had wanted. The victory is a massive honour for us because this is the first time this form of the race was held.
2. The United States, 54:18.10
Haley Anderson: It was exciting. This was the first time when we competed like that and the first time is always exciting. We were struggling a little bit at the relays but it was pretty much new for all. It gives more fun when we race for each other. Our tactics worked well as everybody can figure out from our result.
3. Italy, 54:31.00
Federico Vanelli: The temperature was much warmer than at Saturday when I won the silver medal at the 5 km race. It was a very very hard five kilometres for us, it’s a big surprise that we could get a medal. Our tactics worked well, it was a special feeling to have the opportunity to compete for each other.
