Two in a row for Ho

Olympic open-water swimmer Chad Ho won his second Midmar Mile swim event in a row in KwaZulu-Natal at the weekend.

Ho, a finalist in the 2010 Open Water Swimmer of the Year awards, clocked 18min 27sec for the hugely popular event, the KwaZulu-Natal swimmer just three seconds slower than his winning time of last year.

Britain’s David Davies was second in 18:38 followed by another British swimmer, Alfie Howes in 18:47.

The visiting British swimmers dominated the women’s event. Kerri-Anne Payne touched home in 18:51, Cassandra Patten was runner-up in 19:28 and Charlotte Woolliscroft took third in 19:34.
