Jamie Cooke (GBR) has won the swim, in a relatively disappointing time of 1:58.22 which is 4 seconds outside his PB in the Junior Men’s World Championships final.
Maksim Kustov (RUS) gave Cooke a big scare comining within .30 seconds of the defending World Champion. Simon Casse (FRA) came in 3rd and Woo Jin Lee (KOR) in 4th.
Winner of the fencing Arthur Lanigan O’Keeffe (IRL)came in 6th place 4 seconds off the pace, which was enough to consolidate his position at the top of the leaders board. Kustov was rewarded with a good swim and has moved into 2nd position just ahead of Martin Bilko (CZE).
