Burnell sixth in Berlin 10km

14 August 2014

Jack Burnell led the British athletes in the 10km open water race at the European Championships in Berlin.

The British Gas National Centre Loughborough swimmer had a strong race but was unable to hold on to third place going into the last 200m and finished sixth in 1:50:04.1.

Burnell said: “I am very happy with the way I swam the race. Tactically it went really well and I was pleased with how I executed a lot of the points we had discussed prior to the race.

“Unfortunately, although I went into the second-to-last buoy in third, I lost my positioning after being held back which meant I finished sixth.

"Although I’m disappointed not to have won a medal, there are a lot of positives I can take from this race and I'm looking forward to the 5km Team event on Saturday."

Tom Allen (City of Swansea Aquatics) finished 14th in 1:50:12.5 and Caleb Hughes (Hatfield) was 24th in 1:50:56.7.

In the women’s 5km time trial Alice Dearing (Royal Wolverhampton) finished in 16th (1:01:50.9) and Lucinda Campbell (Windsor) was 19th (1:03:12.7).
